[IP2000] IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit, 100 RXN

Call For Price



The IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus RNA which might be extracted from the respiratory tract specimens. The Kit provides reagents for multiplex real-time RT-PCR to detect SARS-CoV-2 by one-step reaction, specifically targeting the E (Envelope), RdRP (RNA-dependent RNA polymerase) and N (Nucleocapsid protein) gene for SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Kit contains the RT enzyme mix and qPCR master mix for reverse transcription and real-time PCR of virus RNA.  The COVID-19 Control (positive control) and ddWater (negative control) are used as indicators to avoid false negative/positive results across all experimental procedures. The Primers/probes Mix contains multiplex primers and TaqMan probes specific to the N, E/RdRP genes of SARS-CoV-2 and RNase P gene of human, detected by FAM, VIC and ROX channels, respectively.

-20°C for 12 months

High Sensitivity:5×102 copies/ml (10 copies/rxn)

The confirmatory LOD for SARS-CoV-2 is 500 copies/ml for the IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit when analyzed in Bio-Rad CFX96, ABI StepOnePlus, ABI 7500 Fast, Roche LC480, Roche LC96, as well as in Qiagen Rotor Gene Q  qPCR instruments.

High Inclusivity >99% of currently available complete virus genomes for SARS-CoV-2 including Omicron variant

Based upon BLAST analysis, the IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit maps with >99.1% homology of known SARS-CoV-2 isolates in GenBank databases. Results confirmed the perfect matches to SARS-CoV-2 and inclusivity for 5 variants of concern are more than 99% in the database.

High Stability  

The IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit  is stable at 37°C and 25°C for at least 2 weeks, and at 4°C for 24 weeks. The kit is also stable during 10 times of freeze-thaw cycles.

High AccuracyClinical validation with 100% accuracy  

Clinical studies using contrived specimens 

The data showed 100% agreement with the expected results in the RNA spiked specimens and 100% agreement with the expected results in the negative specimens. The results demonstrated that the IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit has 100% sensitivity, 100% specificity and 100% accuracy. 

 Clinical validation using patient specimens

The results of 60 positive (Ct < 30: 30 samples and Ct 30-35: 30 samples) and 30 negative samples from the patient specimens were compared to the FDA-authorized comparator real-time RT-PCR assay (CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel). The data showed that the IdPath™ COVID-19 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit has 100% sensitivity, 100% specificity and 100% accuracy. 

No Cross-Reactivity in Silico Analysis 

An in silico analysis was performed to assess the potential of 47 organisms for interference with SARS-CoV-2 detection. The reference sequence (RefSeqs) in the NCBI Virus database or whole genome in the taxonomy database were used. No significant homology was observed between the SARS-CoV-2 primers/probes and other coronaviruses (except SARS-CoV) or human microflora.
