CORONA VIRUS OVERVIEW
The virus causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever and in more severe cases, pneumonia. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently and avoiding touching your face.

Corona Virus Detection :
BioCov-ID RT-qPCR detection kit is designed to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 Novel Coronavirus in respiratory specimens. It aids in the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA (N1 & N2 region) and internal control (RPP30 gene). The kit is based on the nucleic acid amplification technology and the standard hydrolysis probe system known as TaqMan® Technology. The kit is designed as per recommended CDC/WHO guidelines. Certified by NIV,Pune & ICMR,New Delhi.Real Time PCR (RT-PCR) Detetion Kit is designed to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in respiratory specimens and serum sample. more details .......
The Viral RNA Kit simplifies purification of viral RNA from cell-free body fluids with fast spin-column or vacuum procedures. Viral RNA binds specifically to the silica membrane, and pure viral RNA is eluted in either water or a buffer provided with the kit. Main features : Rapid isolation of high-quality, ready-to-use RNA, No organic extraction or alcohol precipitation, Consistent, high yields, Complete removal of contaminants and inhibitors
Positive (+): three lines appear in both the detection area (IgM)or (IgG) and control line (C). The results showed that the sample is positive has IgG and IgM are in the samples If only two lines appear. -One line in the detection area (IgM) or (IgG) and control line (C). The results showed that the sample contained only IgM antibody or IgG antibody. Negative (-): A control line (C)only, and no test line appears in the detection area (IgM) (IgG). Invalid: No any bands appear in the control area (C). Indicates improper operation or the kit has failed. In this case, read the instructions carefully and retest with a new kit. If the problem persists, stop using this batch of products immediately and contact your local supplier. Note: The test line of the detection area (IgM) (IgG) can be showed the test line, but but must be within the specified observation time, a very weak color band should be determined as positive result also more details...
