RT-PCR

The RT-PCR test runs on Roche's automated Cobas 6800/8800 systems and is also available in countries accepting the CE mark.

The funding will be used to start a new trial to assess the benefits of repeat population testing, expand existing trials, and increase PCR-based testing capacity.

Some of the firms will receive money to speed up test development, while others will use the funds to expand their testing and manufacturing capacity.

While the market ditched shares of many other diagnostics firms, analysts said the reaction was overblown, particularly in the case of Quidel and molecular diagnostics players.

Up to 35 private and public labs in France will be able to use UgenTec's FastFinder analysis software to scale up testing for SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens.

Fluidigm's Advanta Dx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assay is an extraction-free saliva-based test to detect nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The assay uses RT-PCR and next-generation sequencing to detect coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acids from upper respiratory nasal specimens.

Zymo Research said that the Quick SARS-CoV-2 rRT-PCR kit includes ready-to-use reaction mixtures that reduce hands-on time and eliminate human errors during the set-up process.

The firm had been distributing BGI's SARS-CoV-2 test kit but will stop distributing it effective immediately, OpGen's CEO said.

The California-based genetic testing firm said its new lab will be able to process 20,000 tests per day and will initially focus on COVID-19 testing.
