The Anchor Inf A/B + SARS-2 PCR Kit RUO (Cat No. A1900) constitutes a ready-to-use system for the reverse transcription, amplification, detection and differentiation of Influenza A (M1-gene, segment 7), Influenza B (NP-gene, segment 5) and SARS-CoV-2 (S-gene & N-gene) specific genomic RNA segments.
In addition, a heterologous amplification system (Internal Control) is included to supervise the success of the sample extraction procedure and to identify possible inhibition of the amplification reaction.
Probes linked to distinguishable fluorescent dyes enable the parallel detection of Influenza A, Influenza B and SARS-CoV-2 specific nucleic acids and the internal control in four corresponding detector channels of the Real Time PCR instrument.
The Positive Control Inf A/B + SARS-2 contains a defined concentration of synthetic RNA bearing the Influenza A, Influenza B and SARS-CoV-2 target sequences. It is used together with the negative control to monitor the integrity of the analyte-specific reagents of the kit and the proper performance of the reaction.
The Anchor Inf A/B + SARS-2 PCR Kit can also be used in an Influenza A/B-only mode, allowing the use of an extended list of PCR platforms.
