Test kit:
(UK variant) RUO



Our in-vitro diagnostic test kit based on rapid Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification technology. This kit can reliably detect and distinguish the mutants from UK (20I/501Y.V1, B.1.1.7 – VOC-202012/01) as well as the South African mutation (B.1.351 lineage). The test kit is aimed to improve the public health situation by rapidly enabling the detection of variants of concern.

The kit is designed for quantitative detection of variants of interest of the SARS-CoV-2 Viral RNA in direct nasal, nasopharyngeal or throat swabs* and it works in conjuction with our peakPCR devices

* For Research Applications Only



The test kits are sold with all the necessary reagents pre-loaded in the reaction wells. The use of the test kits is therefore extremely simple:

  1. Apply the sample (viral RNA)
  2. Apply water in the control wells and the oil cover
  3. Instert the kit in peakPCR, press a button, drink a coffee and check your results.

Notes and instructions:

  • The kits are supplied in a vacuum-sealed bag in order to ensure a long shelf life.
  • Each kit has a unique serial number that allows you to track all your experiments.
  • Details instructions about how to use the kits and the additives are provided

Performance data

Our test kits have undergone a preliminary validation at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH).
