The multiplex RT-PCR test simultaneously detects two target sequences inside the SARS-CoV-2 N gene, providing results in about two hours.

The assay is a real-time RT-PCR test designed for the qualitative detection of specific sequences of the SARS-CoV-2 N gene in respiratory specimens.

The RT-qPCR test was made available last week after validation in accordance with the US Food and Drug Administration's Emergency Use Authorization guidance.

The chip will include coding SNPs identified by Medicinal Genomics using its Kannapedia cannabis genomic database, according to Eurofins.

UgenTec's FastFinder software platform uses artificial intelligence to enable analysis and interpretation of qPCR data, workflow automation, and genotyping.

CareDx claims that Eurofins Viracor infringes on its patent related to noninvasive monitoring of organ transplant rejection through cell-free DNA analysis.

By acquiring Bothell, Washington-based Blue Heron, Eurofins Genomics could strengthen its offerings to the synthetic biology market.

Transplant Genomics offers a test that assesses differentially expressed genes in blood to rule out subclinical kidney transplant rejection.
