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 [...]
SARS-CoV-2 Diagnostics. Screening. Surveillance. | SARS-CoV-2 testing is a term used for different applications including diagnostics, screening, and surveillance. This post describes the differences between them.
How to Load Barcode Indexes in Illumina® Experiment Manager | The Illumina® Experiment Manager (IEM) is an app used to create valid sample sheets for some Illumina® sequencers. Although sample sheets can be generated manually, this tool minimize the risk of errors.
