The UltraGene Assay SARS-CoV-2 452R & 484K & 484Q Mutations V1 (RUO) is a RT-PCR Assay (nucleic acid technique (NAT)) intended to screen the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 genomic variations on the Spike (S) gene.
For Research Use Only (RUO). Not for use in diagnostic procedures. No claim or representation is intended to provide information for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of disease.
The UltraGene Assay SARS-CoV-2 452R & 484K & 484Q Mutations V1 is intended to screen the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 genome harboring the mutations L452R, E484K and E484Q on the Spike (S) gene.
This nucleic amplification test is indicated for use on previously diagnosed COVID-19 patients ONLY. This test is NOT intended to be used as a screening or confirmation test for the detection, confirmation or quantification in upper respiratory specimens of SARS-CoV-2.
The Assay is a multiplex test targeting the S region of SARS-CoV-2 patients’ extracted RNA in upper respiratory specimens (such as nasal, mid-turbinate, nasopharyngeal, and oropharyngeal swab specimens, and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal aspirate specimens) from individuals already tested positive to SARS-CoV-2.
The UltraGene SARS-CoV-2 SARS-CoV-2 452R & 484K & 484Q Mutations V1 (RUO) is intended for use by trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in the techniques of real-time PCR. The current laboratory biosafety guidance for the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) shall be followed.
