Simplifying the Collection of Samples for SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Testing | The FDA has authorized a new sample type, anterior nasal swabs, for use with some EUA authorized real-time RT-PCE assays for COVID-19 testing.
CHOOSING A CORONAVIRUS PCR ASSAY WEBINAR Sleep Better Without Testing Nightmares Choosing the right solution for your laboratory’s SARS-CoV-2 testing needs can be a difficult decision. With the dynamic demand on labs, making the wrong choice could be catastrophic. In this presentation, we discuss the critical factors to consider when choosing the set up for your testing needs: [...]
Importance of Immunoassays for Coronavirus Control | On December 31, 2019, a pneumonia case in the Chinese city, Wuhan, with unknown pathological origin, was reported into the Chinese World Health Organization (WHO) office.
DEPLETION OF ABUNDANT TRANSCRIPTS IN COMBINED mRNA & miRNA LIBRARY PREP WEBINAR Don’t miss our on-demand webinar, Simultaneous Depletion of Abundant Transcripts in Combined mRNA & microRNA Sequencing Libraries Derived from Peripheral Blood Peripheral blood is an attractive biofluid for use in clinical research because it is easy to collect and contains nucleic acids and other biomolecules originating [...]
Do We Have Enough Data (yet) on PGT-A? | I’ve been involved in the Preimplantation Genetic Testing field since my first case in 1992. I’ve seen it grow and change over time in response to the latest publications and I’ve seen the tests evolve from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) through fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), microarrays, and next generation sequencing (NGS).
Important Considerations When choosing a SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR Assay | Accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2 is critical for both patient treatment, as well as, control of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many factors need to be considered when choosing a workflow to use for SARS-CoV-2 detection.
The Importance of Sensitivity in SARS-CoV-2 Real-Time RT-PCR Assays | Accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2 is critical for both patient treatments, as well as control of the COVID-19 pandemic. One important factor to consider when deciding upon a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay to use for detection of SARS-CoV-2 is the Limit of Detection (LOD).
Helping Labs Test for COVID-19 | The IRR was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to distributes COVID-19 diagnostic supplies to registered state and local public health laboratories in the US.
