Qiagen QiAcuity One-Step Viral RT-PCR Kit for Wastewater Testing
Qiagen has launched a dedicated RT-PCR kit for SARS-CoV-2 wastewater testing on the company's QiAcuity Digital PCR platform. QiAcuity precisely quantifies minimal quantities of DNA and RNA, making it ideal for research tests for viruses, bacteria, or genetic disorders. The platform is available in a one-plate, four-plate, and eight-plate version, all of which feature flexible sample throughput and the ability to simultaneously detect up to five target sequences. This enables the QiAcuity Eight, for instance, to process up to 1,248 samples in one working day, Qiagen said.
