QIAseq solutions for SARS-CoV-2
For targeted whole genome library preparation of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease
The QIAseq SARS-CoV-2 Primer Panel is specially designed to advance research into SARS-CoV-2, which is the causative agent of COVID-19 disease. This kit, when paired with a QIAseq FX DNA Library UDI Kit, is a solution for enriching and sequencing the entire viral genome. SARS-CoV-2 is encoded by a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA molecule that can be mixed with host RNA during isolation from a sample. The kit includes reagents to reverse transcribe the RNA into cDNA and primers to specifically enrich for its genome. The panel consists of over 200 primer pairs, covering the full 29.9 kb viral genome.
