HELPING LABS MEET THEIR SARS-COV-2 TESTING CHALLENGES
IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF SARS-COV-2 TESTING
We are here to help laboratories overcome their SARS-CoV-2 testing challenges so they can better address the world’s urgent public health concerns. We are working closely with laboratories around the world to deliver the nucleic acid isolation, automation, real-time PCR, antibody testing, and vaccine development solutions they need to rapidly respond to these challenges. Our top priority is to provide the technology and support to meet these needs.
We help labs:
- Increase their throughput
- Improve their accuracy
- Increase their efficiency
- Enhance their laboratory safety
Delivering the Solutions You Need
PerkinElmer has reinforced our manufacturing and logistic capabilities to ensure we can deliver the coronavirus testing solutions you need. PerkinElmer facilities throughout the world are manufacturing the coronavirus testing kits and equipment to ensure global accessibility of our solutions.
Providing the Support You Need, When You Need It
PerkinElmer delivers the help you need via webinars, video conferences, presentations, and email which is manned day and night to ensure you get the help you need, when you need it. We are there for you.
PerkinElmer® New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit Authorized Under FDA EUA
The PerkinElmer New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in human oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swab samples. Testing is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. §263a, to perform high complexity tests, or by similarly qualified non-U.S. laboratories.
PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR Assay CE-IVD
The PerkinElmer SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR assay is CE-IVD marked and intended for in vitro diagnostic use in Europe. This assay provides reliable and high-quality results for the clinical detection of COVID-19 in in human oropharyngeal swab, nasopharyngeal swab, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), sputum, plasma or serum samples.
PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Nucleic Acid Detection Kit (RUO)
Designed to streamline SARS-CoV-2 laboratory developed testing, the PerkinElmer SARS-CoV-2 Nucleic Acid Detection Kit (RUO) is an real-time RT-PCR-based assay.
Automation of RNA Isolation Setup and PCR Assay Setup
Specialized JANUS® G3 automated workstations are now available to optimize your SARS-CoV-2 testing workflow. With the ability to automate sample prep for RNA isolation and PCR setup these workstations are designed to be used with any SARS-CoV-2 viral extraction and detection assay chemistry.
Viral RNA Isolation
The PerkinElmer chemagic™ Viral DNA/ RNA 300 Kit H96 and the chemagic™ 360 instrument deliver fast, high throughput extraction of high-quality RNA for use with PCR-based detection of SARS-CoV-2. With this setup, RNA can be extracted from 96 samples per hour, producing high quality RNA.
Simplifying the Analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus with NGS
PerkinElmer’s NGS workflows enable effective and high-throughput detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, surveillance and epidemiological studies, the tracking of mutational changes in the virus, unbiased pathogen discovery, and the analysis of potential susceptibility and human response to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
