EasyScreen™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses, transmitted between animals and people, known to cause illnesses ranging in severity from the common cold to more severe diseases such as the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)1. The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is the seventh known coronavirus to infect humans (others are 229E, NL63, OC43, HKU1, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV), with the first reported case of the current SAR-CoV-2 (formally known as 2019-nCoV) outbreak originating from Wuhan, China on the 31st December 20192.

The Genetic Signatures’ EasyScreen™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit (RP011/RP011-HT) has been designed to provide rapid and accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2.
