31.1.2020 - Bosphore Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Detection Kit

Our Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Detection Kit will be launched soon, right after its verification process is completed. With our new kit, Wuhan virus known as 2019-nCoV, will be detected and characterised easily in a short period of 2 hours in human biological samples.

 

The 2019-nCoV detection kit that we have developed, the risk of possible mutations in the virus affecting the test result is prevented by identifying multiple target regions using multiplex Real-Time PCR technology. At the same time, the risk of cross-reactivity to viruses such as SARS2003 and batSARS with genetically close resemblance has been eliminated with unique oligonucleotide design that provides high specificity.

 

IVD-CE marked Bosphore Coronavirus Panel Kit v1, which has been in use all over the world for 3 years, detects and characterizes Coronavirus 229E, Coronavirus HKU1, Coronavirus OC43 and Coronavirus NL63 in human respiratory samples. With the newly developed Bosphore Coronavirus Panel Kit v2, the 2019-nCoV Wuhan virus will also be included among the differentiated coronavirus species.
