Identifying the Delta VOC (B.1.617) with the NEXTFLEX® Variant-Seq™ SARS-CoV-2 Kit | On May 10, 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the delta variant a variant of concern (VOC), the fourth variant to receive this designation.
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.
Watch Our Webinar to Expand Your Single-Cell Opportunities | Biological resolution at the level of individual cells is powering the next phase of precision health. Honeycomb is developing a new paradigm in single-cell technology — integrating a sample storage solution within single-cell profiling.
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.
Profound Expertise in Automated DNA and RNA Workflows | Since 1997, PerkinElmer chemagen develops and produces reliable chemagic™ instruments and kits for automated high-throughput nucleic acid purification from human sample materials.
Examining the Workflow of a Cutting-edge COVID-19 Diagnostic Lab | In early 2020, the Netherlands identified its first COVID-19 cases. Facilitating test capacity for all symptomatic individuals resulted in extensive pressure on diagnostics labs making it challenging for non- symptomatic individuals such as travelers, teachers and professional athletes to get tested.
WILL YOUR RT-PCR ASSAY IDENTIFY THE NEW SARS-COV-2 VARIANTS? Diagnosing COVID-19 Variants of Concern (VOCs) The WHO has designated four variants as being of global concern and requiring heightened tracking and analysis. These are the B.1.1.7, B. 1.351, P.1, and B.1.617 variants. Do These Mutations Affect PerkinElmer’s Diagnostic Coronavirus RT-PCR Assays? The mutations in the VOC recognized by [...]
