ViroQ® & ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2 – the reliable rapid PCR tests
Brings safety for small and high sample throughput
According to current experience, an infection with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) causes only common cold symptoms in four out of five infections. However, in patients with a weakened immune system or corresponding chronic illnesses, disease patterns with a more serious course – even death – can occur. If the virus spreads too quickly, intensive medical care for patients cannot be guaranteed throughout the country.
Against the massive spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, our reliable CE IVD certified rapid tests helps to locate infected persons safely. This is the only way to prevent the unchecked spread of the virus.
Attention: New variant of SARS-CoV-2 from UK is covered by our ViroQ® kits.
For all who want more - ViroQ® Rapid SARS-Cov-2
Do you want to get results even faster without compromising on quality? We have made ViroQ® SARS-Cov-2 even more efficient with a specially optimized PCR protocol. With ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2 valid results are available after less than 60 minutes. That means one more test run per day! The PCR protocol is applicable to both kits.
"Why ViroQ® & ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2? Our rapid tests verifies whether there is sufficient sample material in the swabs. You will only receive negative results if no COVID-19 can actually be detected! False negative results - due to insufficient samples - are thus avoided.
Furthermore, we can send our test kits uncooled. This saves you considerable logistics costs."
Fast and valid results
False negative results, due to insufficient sampling with too little cell material, are excluded by this test. In the ViroQ® and ViroQ® Rapid Tests, the detection of a human, universally occurring gene in cells shows whether sufficient cell material is available for valid results.
By the way: With our kits you remain independent from dedicated providers - they work with common RNA-Isolation kits and common real time cyclers. The test results are available in only 90 minutes – with ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2 (thanks to the optimized PCR protocol) in less than 60 minutes.
We have also thought about the logistics costs: To keep them as low as possible, both Test Kits can be shipped uncooled. A control temperature of -20 degrees Celsius is only necessary during storage.
- One step real-time PCR procedure – get your results in less than 60 (Rapid Kit) or 90 minutes
- Testing of the sample quality – no false negative results
- Safe handling, ready-to-use reagents
- Save logistics costs – transport ViroQ® uncooled
Fast One-Step Real-time PCR
The ViroQ® and ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Kits are designed for specific detection of viral RNA Gene E and RdRP of SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory samples. In our test kits the RNA is converted from SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) to cDNA in a one-step PCR procedure. This cDNA is then amplified in the same real time PCR protocol.
The kit consists of the following components:
|1. tube||Mastermix: transcription + amplification|
|2. tube||Reconstitution buffer|
|3. tube||Primer-Probe Mixture:
Colour 1: Virus gene 1 (FAM)
Colour 2: Virus gene 2 (HEX)
Colour 3: Cell control (CFR610) (housekeeping gene)
|4. tube||Positive Control (SARS-CoV-2 Positive Control)|
Ready-to-use standard reagents and a one-step PCR run provide fast results. The ViroQ® and ViroQ® Rapid SARS-CoV-2 tests also contain a control of a human universally expressed gene, which is used to check whether there is enough cell material in the sample to give meaningful results.
