SARS-CoV-2 Detection and Research
PCR Biosystems is committed to providing researchers, developers and diagnostic kit manufacturers with the PCR products and services they need to detect SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses.
The COVID-19 pandemic introduced many challenges, not least testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus on a vast scale. To meet the needs of our customers we provide a range of products that can detect SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses in singleplex or multiplex assays, along with technical support and insights on how to optimise such assays.
We manufacture under a rigorous ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 quality system meaning our products and processes meet (and exceed) the required standards and regulations for the manufacturing of medical device components. To support high throughput diagnostic workflows, we’ve introduced 50mL and 500mL bulk sizes of our RT-qPCR mixes into to our standard portfolio to provide greater consistency, convenience, and value in testing for COVID-19.
With a wealth of PCR experience within our team, our experts are on hand to help optimise assay conditions and increase testing turnaround times specific to your set up. Please contact us to find out more.
qPCRBIO Probe 1-Step Virus Detect
A high-concentration 4x RT-qPCR kit designed specifically for ultra-sensitive, high-throughput detection of viral RNA sequences, including SARS-CoV-2. Users can add more sample to their reactions to boost analytical sensitivity, even when working with small volume reactions.
qPCRBIO Probe 1-Step Go
This universal 2x master mix is engineered for fast and sensitive 1-step RT-qPCR using sequence-specific probes. The redesigned buffer system, thermostable reverse transcriptase and antibody-mediated hot start technology support rapid and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
qPCRBIO Probe Mix
qPCRBIO Probe Mix is the robust choice for all your probe-based real-time PCR needs. Our universal kit can be used to reliably detect extremely low copy number targets and quantify any DNA template including genomic, cDNA and viral sequences.
IsoFast™ Bst 1-Step Mix
IsoFast™ Bst 1-Step Mix is a dual enzyme system for rapid and sensitive isothermal amplification of RNA targets in one step.
UltraScript Reverse Transcriptase
UltraScript is a thermostable reverse transcriptase, producing high quality cDNA ideal for a variety of downstream applications. The enzyme enables highly sensitive and accurate reverse transcription of viral RNA sequences, making it an ideal component of RT-qPCR-based SARS-CoV-2 detection tests.
PCRBIO HS Taq DNA Polymerase & Mixes
Whether you need a hot start enzyme for high-throughput assays, automated reaction setup or the detection of a low copy viral template, PCRBIO HS Taq DNA Polymerase is a robust, industry-leading enzyme to meet your needs. Available in standard and custom formats to suit the specific requirements of your COVID-19 diagnostic workflow.
RiboShield™ RNase Inhibitor
RiboShield™ RNase Inhibitor is a recombinant protein that blocks the activity of a wide range of ribonucleases to reliably protect your RNA from RNase digestion in all RNA-sensitive applications.
