Request Online-Demo Request Online-Demo Here we describe a possible design for a multiplexing RT-qPCR for detection of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which does not only allow us to determine a coronavirus infection, but also to distinguish the variant causing it. Currently, variants of SARS-CoV-2 are only detected via sequencing of the samples after positive RT-qPCR. As the sequencing is time and labor intensive, typically only...

PCR vial Illustration art for Kilobaser desktop DNA Synthesizer machine for in-house DNA Synthesis

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a common molecular technique to create millions or even billions of copies of a certain fragment of DNA in vitro. Our DNA synthesizer, called Kilobaser, produces these small synthetic DNA fragments, which are necessary for every PCR....
