PerkinElmer Solutions to Combat the Omicron SARS-CoV-2 Variant | The performance of PerkinElmer SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Detection Kits is not impacted by mutations associated with the Omicron variant.
WEBINAR: Key Considerations in Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction for Pathogen and Genetic Screening Workflows
Nucleic acid extraction lies at the beginning of almost every molecular biology-based workflow. Although the principle behind it is simple, when done poorly, it can have a significant impact on final experimental results. If working with patient samples, maintaining sample integrity becomes even more essential and reliable results are paramount to ensuring a fast and accurate diagnosis.
Rise in Flu and RSV Infections | The Center for Disease Control and Prevention RSV National Trends Report shows that respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is already on the rise this season.
Timely Identification, Tracking and Mitigation of Future Outbreaks | We could have prevented the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak from developing into a pandemic, but we did not have an adequate surveillance system that could detect novel threats, particularly those that can be carried by asymptomatic carriers.
Watch our on-demand webinar | During the past year, laboratories across the globe have joined together to take up the fight against COVID19 by rapidly launching clinical diagnostic assays to detect affected individuals and ultimately help curb the spread of the disease.
Currently the CDC recommends that any fully vaccinated person who experiences symptoms consistent with COVID-19 be tested for SARS-CoV-2 if indicated. That leads to the question can COVID-19 vaccinations cause false positives? Here’s what we know.
Verifying the Presence of the SARS-CoV-2 in Positive RT-PCR Samples | The purpose of this study is to use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) of samples with a range of Ct values to verify the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 genome.
