SARS-CoV-2 Immunoassay Kits
            
                
Creative Diagnostics now offers immunoassay kits for direct detection of the new coronavirus and antibodies against SARS-CoV-2  

The outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2  (SARS-CoV-2, previously named 2019 novel coronavirus or 2019-nCoV)  disease (COVID-19) from China at the end of 2019 has become a global  pandemic and an unprecedented public health issue.

Creative Diagnostics started developing a new test shortly after the  outbreak had become known. Only a few weeks later, two ELISAs for the  detection of Anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies of classes IgM and IgG and one  ELISA for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 NP antigen were available. Both  test systems are currently only available to research institutions as  research-use-only products.

Preparations for CE registration of these  tests are underway.

Introducing  Coronavirus Research Tools from BioVision
                                       
                                                                            
Coronaviruses are large, enveloped, non-segmented positive-sense RNA viruses that  are known to affect humans, mammals and birds.
          
Recently scientists discovered a novel strain of Coronavirus that caused massive viral outbreak in China. This virus is more deadly than SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV combined, and is named as SARS-CoV-2  (previously, COVID-19). Due to limited information regarding the role of the SARS-CoV-2 proteins in viral pathogenesis and replication, not many treatment options are available. Additionally, there are limited research tools available in the market.
          
BioVision is pleased to announce the launch of Coronavirus antibodies, proteins, kits and anti-viral agents, the first in the market for Coronavirus research.These research products can detect SARS-CoV-2, SARS and MERS Coronaviruses.
                                                                                         
          
Key Features:
          
  • 1st in the Market
  • Antibodies, Proteins, Kits & Anti-viral Agents Available
  • Specific to SARS-CoV-2, SARS, MERS
  •           

                                                              
         
    
    



    
A Closed-Tube, Diagnostic Test for COVID-19 at Home, Clinic, and Points of Entry
 

The 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic is a growing public health emergency of international concern. As of February 25, 2020, the virus has spread to over 33 countries, sickened more than 80,000 people worldwide, and killed over 2,600 people. Current methods for qualitative detection of COVID-19 primarily depend on reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR). However, RT-PCR tests can produce false negative results due to insufficient detection sensitivity for patients with a low viral load. Moreover, RT-PCR requires well-equipped laboratories and skilled personnel. Due to the rapid spread of the virus and limited capacity of hospitals, a more accurate, rapid, and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic for COVID-19 is urgently needed.

In a recent preprint manuscript posted on ChemRxiv™, El-Tholoth and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania have developed simple, point-of-care assays for qualitative COVID-19 detection using one-stage LAMP (loop-mediated isothermal amplification) or two-stage Penn-RAMP (recombinase polymerase amplification plus LAMP). Specificity was accomplished by amplifying a conserved sequence of ORF1ab from the COVID-19 genome with high homology to the virus and high divergence from all other coronaviruses. The one-stage LAMP assay contains an isothermal master mix with EvaGreen® dye for reliable and robust amplification. Results show the one-stage LAMP assay performs comparably to RT-PCR methods for COVID-19 detection in tests with purified template and mock patient samples. Results for the two-stage Penn-RAMP assay showed...
