We hope you’re keeping safe and well and enjoying the sunny weather.
That said, we all have one eye on the coming winter respiratory season and we thought we would update you on the extensive range of Viasure RT-PCR kits available and an imminent exciting edition.
CerTest are working on a novel multiplex for winter respiratory viruses, targeting Flu/RSV/SARS-CoV-2 with an expected availability very soon. We are partnering with the relevant bodies in Europe, and are very keen to engage with laboratories in the UK to have the kit assessed.
Viasure kits are lyophilized room temperature storage with a simple 2-step test procedure. The SARS-CoV-2 kit in particular is now used widely in the UK and worldwide with over 6 million tests supplied to date.
Production capacity for the UK currently runs at 1 million tests per week with opportunity for expansion.
All Viasure kits run on the same cycling parameters and where appropriate may be run from the same sample extraction allowing incredibly simple multiplex and multi target testing. The kits are fully compatible with almost all RT-PCR cyclers and can be combined with liquid handling robots for robust, high throughput automated testing with a fast turnaround time.
The assay range, ease of use, production capacity and scalability makes this an attractive option for all laboratories and we are ready to meet demand where required.
We are posting our future developments on crowdsourcing platform that we are sure you are all familiar with.
