Viral RNA in 31 Minutes!

Short protocol for chemagic 360 instrument for viral RNA extraction

Extract viral RNA from SARS-CoV-2 associated samples in 31 Minutes!

PerkinElmer chemagen has optimized the protocol for the chemagic™ Viral DNA/RNA 300 Kit on the chemagic™ 360 instrument which enables the viral RNA extraction within 31 minutes. The configuration and the set up stays the same, it is only necessary to install the new protocol version for the chemagic 360 instrument. Please contact the Support Team to install the new protocol version on your chemagic™ 360 instrument.

Maximize your SARS-CoV-2 detection by processing up to 10,000 samples/day! The fully automated explorer™ G3 workstation delivers a complete walk-away, high-throughput automation workflow for SARS-CoV-2 testing. Viral RNA is extracted using chemagic™ 360 instruments with the chemagic™ Viral DNA/RNA 300 Kits. PerkinElmer’s SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests are prepared using a JANUS® G3 PCR workstation and the SARS-CoV-2 specimens are analysed using integrated RT-qPCR instruments.

SARS-CoV-2 testing at DKMS Life Science Lab

High throughput PCR-based SARS-CoV-2 testing by DKMS Life Science Lab

DKMS Life Science Lab is one of the world's largest and most advanced genotyping service providers. During the pandemic they have started to support the SARS-CoV-2 testing with their chemagic™ 360 and MSM I instruments. In the following German publication from Biospektrum, they present now how they have increased their testing capacities to 25,000 SARS-CoV-2 samples / day. In addition, they show the successful pooling of six samples with minimal sensitivity loss.

Highest Sensitivity with PerkinElmer SARS-CoV-2 Testing Solutions
