Herewith we would like to inform you that the Extraction-Free application of the Seegene Allplex™ SARS-CoV-2 Assay is now also available. With this application the Allplex™ SARS-CoV-2 Assay can be processed without the need of extraction, which results in time and cost savings for the lab. The performance is very similar compared to the standard procedure with extraction.
The validated Real-time PCR instruments to run this test are the CFX96™ with Seegene Viewer software or the ABI 7500, for the labs which don’t have a CFX96™.
Especially in these days where there is a shortage of instruments, certain extraction reagents and certain consumables, this application could be a very attractive solution for a reliable COVID-19 diagnostics with a very well established test.
