Acid Detection Integrated Solution
In responds to the outbreak of novel coronavirus, CMI has successfully distributed a rapid testing solution for the covid-19 virus, which includes Virus Sampling Tube, Transport Medium, Virus Nucleic Acid Purification Reagents , RT-PCR Detection Kit and RT-PCR Detection Devices. During the outbreak, CMI was proudly selected by Ontario Provincial government to supply covid-19 related products for national strategic supply.
Polymerase Chain Reaction
PCR Testing: The Gold Standard
PCR testing is one of the most widely used lab tests for finding viruses and other pathogens like bacteria, fungi and parasites that cause diseases such as Ebola, SARS and now COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). The WHO recommends Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (which includes PCR testing) as the preferred testing method for COVID-19.
Sometimes called “molecular photocopying,” the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique used to “amplify” – copy – small segments of DNA.
TEST KIT COMPONENTS
For collection and storage of clinical samples
It can be used for clinical sample preservation and inactivation, such as oral cavity and pharynx, at normal temperature, which effectively preventing changes of the type and relative abundance of microorganisms in the sample. The nucleic acid in microorganisms maintain high integrity after being stored in virus sampling tubes, and can be subsequently used for biological experiments such as enzyme digestion, PCR and next-gen sequencing. It is used for sample collection and preservation in hospitals and scientific research.
For transportation and preservation samples
Provides a stable environment for sample collection, transportation and storage. The sample is sent to the laboratory for subsequent testing, which can be used for downstream nucleic acid detection and virus isolation to determine whether the collected sample is infected with the virus. It has cryoprotection and biological buffering effects, can maintain the activity of the virus over a long time and temperature range, reduce the rate of virus decomposition and increase the positive rate of virus isolation and detection.
For extraction, enrichment and purification of nucleic acid
For extraction, enrichment and purification of nucleic acid. The processed product is used for clinical in vitro detection. Lysis Buffer breaks up the virus and release Denaturation. The virus DNA/RNA can be adsorbed and eluted through polymer membrane material
