CoviDetect™ FASTPentaBase’s CoviDetect™ FAST diagnostic assay is a Real-Time RT (Reverse transcriptase) qPCR assay based on highly sensitive technology used to detect SARS-CoV-2 virus in patients. The Multiplex assay is a combination of three specific genes for SARS-CoV-2 and internal control for validating the method. The three specific SARS-CoV-2 genes result in minimising the risk of false-positive results. The assay can be used with standard procedures and applies to our Real-Time PCR equipment and Biorad CFX equipment. The use of CoviDetect™ FAST assay for detecting the RNA presence of the virus will provide a quick and sensitive Nucleic Acid Extraction and Real-Time RT-qPCR analysis in less than an hour. A fast SARS-CoV-2 test with CoviDetect™ FAST with a total instrument time of 51 minutes
- 16 minutes in the BasePurifier™ (Nucleic Acid Extraction Instrument)
- 35 minutes to run on the BaseTyper™ (Real-Time PCR Instrument)
About CoviDetect™ FAST
How do we achieve this?
At PentaBase, we have optimised every step in the laboratory procedure to offer a new assay that provides a faster and more sensitive test result. The Limit of Detection (LoD) is among the best of its class that secures a market-leading sensitivity with an LoD of 5 copies and increased multiplexing of three viral genes of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
