SARS-CoV-2 testing in California

Our greatest respect to our colleagues in Valencia, California. They have now processed more than two million COVID-19 related samples with the chemagic™ 360 instrument and further PerkinElmer SARS-CoV- 2 testing solutions. A collaboration with the California Department of Health (CDPH) enables that we can support the prevention of spread of the virus in this region.

These chemagic™ 360 instruments enable a Covid-19 testing capacity of up 37,000 tests per week. They are part of PerkinElmer´s SARS-CoV- 2 testing solution in the Coronalab in Amsterdam! Take a look at the complete workflow in the following interesting blog post.

SARS-CoV-2 sample pooling

Sample pooling for SARS-CoV-2 testing

Interested in sample pooling?

Interested in sample pooling?

Take a look on this interesting publication about efficient pooling for SARS-CoV-2 testing. The researchers have prepared 94 pools of 10 samples (a total of 940 nasopharyngeal swab samples) which were previously tested for SARS-CoV-2 and assigned them with random numbers. Then, they have used the pools for automated viral RNA purification and subsequent RT-PCR analysis to identify positive pools.

SARS-CoV-2 variant detection

Variant identification

New solutions for SARS-CoV-2 variant identification

New solutions for SARS-CoV-2 variant detection

The observation of variants makes it necessary to take a deeper look on positive SARS-CoV-2 detection results. PerkinElmer has now developed two new solutions to identify variants of SARS-CoV-2.

The PKamp™ VariantDetect™ SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Assay is based on real-time RT-PCR multiplexing technology and enables the identification of known variants from positive samples (B1.1.7, B.1.351, P.1).

The NEXTFLEX® Variant Seq™ SARS-CoV-2 Kit for Illumina® sequencing enables the identification of existing and new variants of the SARS-CoV-2.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
