One of the most recent diagnostic challenges has been the accurate symptom-based diagnosis since respiratory infections like COVID-19, the flu, and RSV have symptoms that are extremely similar to one another. Therefore, it is crucial to differentiate between SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and RSV due to the differences in therapy and co-infection risk.
The 1copy™ COVID-19/FluA/FluB/RSV qPCR Kit is a highly sensitive and simple to use real-time, reverse transcription PCR assay that enables in only one reaction, the simultaneous detection of (SARS-CoV-2), influenza virus type A or B (Flu A/B) and Respiratory Syncytial virus (RSV). The kit uses primers and probes that are designed to detect multiple variants within both the A and B subtypes for influenza and RSV.
It contains all the reagents and controls needed including an endogenous human sample control, which confirms the presence of human biological material in a sample so you can be sure that a negative result is due to absence of virus and not missing sample.
