Features of the TaqMan SARS-CoV-2 Mutation Panel include:

  • Customizable—build your own custom panel from a menu of 22 verified real-time PCR assays that allows you to identify currently relevant SARS-CoV-2 mutations and adapt quickly as additional mutations and variants emerge
  • Convenient—use your current real-time PCR instrumentation to conduct follow-up testing of SARS-CoV-2 samples
  • Scalable—run a few or hundreds of samples to identify for one or many mutations
  • Unique, streamlined workflow—combines our gold-standard TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays with a 1-step RT-PCR reaction; go from RNA to results in just over 1 hour

Product details

Targets Choose from a menu of 22 verified real-time PCR SNP assays to build your custom panel
Assay design

Sequence-specific forward and reverse primers to amplify the target sequence region. The reverse primer also primes reverse transcription of the SARS-CoV-2 genomic RNA sequences. Each assay includes two TaqMan minor groove binder (MGB) probes with nonfluorescent quenchers (NFQ):

  • One VIC dye labeled probe to detect the reference sequence
  • One FAM dye labeled probe to detect the mutation sequence
  • Available sizes 300 reactions 
    1,000 reactions 
    Sample input RNA extracted from SARS-CoV-2 samples with a CT value of less or equal to 30 
    Turn around time 1 hour and 10 min from extracted RNA to results
    Recommended instruments Any real-time PCR instrument such as the Applied Biosystems 7500, 7500 Fast, QuantStudio 5, and QuantStudio 7 systems 
    Recommended software QuantStudio Design and Analysis Software v2.5 or later with the Genotyping Analysis Module



    Our menu of verified real-time PCR assays provide robust detection of SARS-CoV-2 mutations. Below are results (cluster plots) as viewed using QuantStudio Design and Analysis Software 2.5 with the Genotyping Analysis Module. These cluster plots show very clear discrimination between the wild type samples (red dots along the x-axis) and the mutation samples (blue dots along the y-axis).

    Training Support

    In this short, 2 video tutorial, you will learn how to:

    • Set up the instrument software for detecting the SARS CoV-2 mutation panel
    • Analyze the data with the Applied Biosystems™ Design and Analysis Software 2.5 or later with the Genotyping Analysis Module using the run files from all Applied Biosystems real-time PCR instruments
