The TRIPLEX COVID-19 RT-PCR Direct is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 directly from the upper respiratory swab, nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, collected in preservative media, (VTM/UTM), pH 7.2-7.4 to provide the molecular diagnostic basis for infected patients.
Due high sensitivity with specially protocol test analyses samples in VTM directly without the need for RNA extraction step. It helps scientists for rapid tracking of disease prevalence and aid in treatment insight (e.g. hospital beds, oxygen ventilators and expensive medications) for healthcare systems in making appropriate measures to combat COVID-19.
There are many challenges associated with ramping up testing capacity, due to supply chain delays and shortage of extraction reagents, this situation call-up for alternative protocols to ensure the continuity of testing in laboratories. Due to an increased demand in SARS-CoV-2 variants screenings, alternative protocol with similar sensitivity is required, said DR. Krishan Kalra, CEO BioGenex. “Sustained surveillance is essential for public health. Our latest tests reduce the cost of testing and turnaround time for the result.
As we learn from the pandemic, we are partnering with concerned organizations to understand and strengthen our diagnostic portfolio to develop-deliver reliable and sustainable diagnostic solutions in the future to help control the spread of Covid-19
