Now available: new Product Lists RealStar® Real-Time PCR Kits

Have a look at our current Product Lists RealStar®  Real-Time PCR Kits and discover  several  new developed CE-IVD marked and /or RUO products.

 

The following products are CE-IVD marked:

RealStar® MERS-CoV (N gene) RT-PCR Lit 1.0 CE (Ref: 651013) for qualitative detection of the MERS-CoV nucleocapsid (N) protein gene (N gene) specific RNA.

This kit was developed to confirm results gained by the usage of RealStar® MERS-CoV RT-PCR Kit 1.0 if necessary. The WHO proposed to utilize N genes as a target sequence to complement NAT assays for screening and confirmation, which target the highly sensitive genes upstream of the E protein gene (upE) and/or the open reading frame 1a (ORF 1a). as our RealStar® MERS-CoV RT-PCR Kit 1.0 does.

 

  • Kit contains one Positive Control
  • Parallel testing with RealStar® MERS-CoV RT-PCR Kit 1.0
  • Probe specific for MERS-CoV N gene is labelled with the fluorophore FAM™
  • Probe specific for the Internal Control is labelled with the fluorophore JOE™
