Supporting COVID-19 testing?Discover the INDICAL SARS-CoV-2 workflow

Veterinary diagnostic facilities are doing their part by supporting COVID-19 testing programs. INDICAL offers veterinary customers a broad range of products for rapid and reliable extraction and identification of SARS-CoV-2 RNA.

INDICAL is a leading molecular diagnostics company with over 20 years’ experience in extraction and detection of animal pathogens. SARS-CoV-2 is a zoonotic virus causing COVID-19 which, like 75% of emerging infectious diseases in humans, is of animal origin.

SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction

Our IndiMag Pathogen Kits enable extraction of Coronavirus RNA from a broad range of samples. This includes SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and PEDV (Briese et al. 2014, Kao and Chang 2019). Their rapid and robust workflows deliver viral RNA ready for real-time PCR amplification and detection, thus saving time in diagnostic workflows.

INDICAL BIOSCIENCE offers several primers and probes for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 RNA with our virotype Mix +IC(JOE)-RNA. The virotype Mix +IC(JOE)-RNA enables ultra-fast, multiplex, real-time amplification of viral RNA and is compatible with common PCR cyclers.
