New Technical Note cfDNA purification

Technical Note about cfDNA extraction with chemagic kits

New Technical Note cfDNA extraction

New Technical Note about high-throughput cfDNA isolation from plasma

PerkinElmer chemagen has developed the chemagic cfDNA Kits which enable the automated and efficient extraction of circulating cell-free DNA from 0.5 - 5 ml plasma in 24-well or 96-well format in maximal 2 hours with minimal hands-on time. Furthermore, the kits show equivalent yields as well as purities compared to a manual silica-spin based kit.

CE-IVD Mark Update for PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Real-Time RT-PCR Assay

The range of sample materials was upgraded, therefore the CE-IVD marked PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR assay can be used for oropharyngeal, nasopharyngeal swabs and now for saliva samples as well. In addition, it is now possible to perform the SARS-CoV-2 detection with pooled samples of up to 5 individuals showing an acute Covid-19 infection as well as asymptomatic carriers.

FDA Emergency Use Authorization for Sample Pooling

FDA Emergency Use Authorization for Sample Pooling

PerkinElmer received the FDA EUA authorization to detect SARS-CoV-2 pathogen RNA in pooled samples containing multiple individual respiratory swabs. Furthermore, the PerkinElmer® New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit allows sample pooling on multiple RT-PCR platforms. While other RT-PCR kit manufacturers struggle with accurate detection due to lack of sensitivity, the PerkinElmer kit convinces by the lowest limit of detection.

Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Flu RT-PCR Panel

SARS flu respiratory testing panel

CE-IVD mark for simultaneous Covid-19 and flu test

The PKamp™ Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Panel assay is a real-time RT-PCR multiplexed test intended for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, and RSV. This workflow enables laboratories to conserve resources while testing a single sample for multiple pathogens.

The PKamp™ Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Panel assay is CE-IVD marked and intended for in vitro diagnostic use in Europe.

1000 chemagic 360 instruments

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.

chemagic™ 360 instruments in explorer™ workstations for SARS-CoV-2 testing

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.
