A Highly Sensitive

multiplex diagnostic solution

The Applied Biosystems TaqPath COVID-19 Combo Kit is a fast, highly sensitive multiplex diagnostic solution that contains the assays and controls needed for the real-time PCR detection of RNA from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Features of the newly developed multiplex diagnostic kit:

  • A complete workflow from viral RNA extraction using real-time PCR
  • Targeted specificity to 100% of currently available complete genomes for SARS-CoV-2
  • Assay targets spike (S) protein and nucleocapsid (N) protein regions having higher specificity and exhibiting lower risk for mutation
  • COVID-19 Interpretive Software, which automatically converts genetic analysis data into diagnosis
Inspire Test Kit

The kit is approved for use with RNA extracted from nasopharyngeal swabs, nasopharyngeal aspirate (nasal aspirate), and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) from patients at risk of exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus or with signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (see product label for Intended Use Statement and product information).
