Evolved for choice and longevity—TaqMan SARS-CoV-2 2.0 assays
Choose from our two new advanced assays of Applied Biosystems TaqMan SARS-CoV-2 2.0 assays that deliver the same accuracy and reliability that our SARS-CoV-2 assays are known for, while offering the ability to accommodate multiple sample types and the choice to utilize either a standard or fast workflow. The standard workflow includes RNA extraction and traditional sample preparation, and the fast workflow is a fast, direct-to-PCR workflow with no RNA extraction required. You’ll also have confidence in your results knowing that our 2.0 assays include enhanced target redundancy to compensate for all SARS-CoV-2 mutations known now and those yet to be discovered in the future.
Features of the TaqMan SARS-CoV-2 2.0 assays include:
- Same accuracy and reliability you have grown to trust—an advanced assay design using multiple targets on orf1a, orf1b, and N genes (Figure 1) compensates for current and emerging SARS-CoV-2 mutations, helping provide continued confidence in results now and into the future
- Multiple workflow options—choose from two assays: one utilizes a standard workflow that includes RNA extraction (Figure 2), and the other utilizes a fast, direct-to-PCR workflow with no RNA extraction required (Figure 3)
- Affordable and scalable—add to your existing SARS-CoV-2 menu using your current real-time PCR instrumentation
