ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 ID RT-PCR Test (RUO) (USA)

Identification of SARS-CoV-2 Variants


The ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 ID RT-PCR Test is an in vitro real-time PCR-based assay that identifies specific strainsand potential high-risk variants of SARS-CoV-2. This assay can be used in conjuction with the ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test v2.0, where positive samples can be further tested to identify if they are possibly one of the Variants of Concern*, including the most recent Omicron variant. This allows for more precise data to be obtained for research and monitoring purposes, while ensuring high efficiency with a short turnaround time.


Specification Values Values

*Ct value ≤ 30


Reliable Detection:

  • Sensitive and Robust
  • Distinguish between Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Omicron lineages from SARS-CoV-2 positive samples

Maximizing Laboratory Efficiency:

  • As low as 10 minutes of hands-on time
  • Automation from sample to results, with automated PCR result analysis and variant calling
  • Start testing from positive sample or eluate
  • Test up to 46 samples (plus 2 controls) per automated run

Increasing Cost Effectiveness:

  • Available in sample-to-results and eluate-to-results workflows
  • Comprehensive and fast turnaround time to variant identification
