Novacyt PROmate Lyophilized Direct-to-PCR COVID-19 Assays

Novacyt has launched its first fully lyophilized direct-to-PCR assays, PROmate COVID-19 2G Dry for use on the company's q32 instrument; and PROmate COVID-19 2G Lite Dry for use on the company's q16 instrument. Both assays can be shipped and transported at ambient temperatures to remote regions or in areas without a centralized cold storage supply chain. The tests are based on the PROmate COVID-19 direct-to-PCR chemistry, and target the ORF1ab gene and the nsp16 gene, a non-structural protein of SARS-CoV-2, the company said.
