Genekam Biotechnology AG has developed a number of tests for detection of coronavirus (Wuhan strain). These are real time PCR kits, which are ready to use with only two steps for pipetting. The results will be highly accurate and specific. The assay will complete within 2 hours. One can run 96 well plate,  there is possible to detect 92 samples (2 samples positive control and 2 samples negative control). One of biggest advantage of Genekam test is that one needs to run only one assay against 3 different assays being used through some users. Usually single check assay is sufficient, but there are other assays like double and triple check, where the samples can be used on different samples while testing them double and three times. The wide range of samples can be used for testing e.g. blood, plasma, serum, buccal swabs, nasal swabs (including throat), urine samples, tissues like lymphnodes, testis. kidney etc.

Genekam has developed also multiplex assays to differentiate between other viruses like influenza, MERS and so on.  These assays can be used to detect similar type of viruses effecting respiratory system.

Genekam offers a various kinds of RNA isolation kit e.g. magnetic beads as well as mini column based. They can be used on different kinds of samples needed for coronaviruses. One can isolate around 100 ul of RNA, which can be stored for long term use. These kits provide very high quality RNA.

Our Realtime kits are compatible with all machines from ABI, Cepheid, Rotagene, Stratagene, Techne, Bio-Rad Chroma 4 and Bio-Rad CFX96, Analytik Jena qTOWER³, Bioneer, Ianlong Gentier 48, MIC. (Hint: All trade marks are properties of their owners)

All PCR Kits contain forwarder and backward primers, fluorogenic probe, positive control, negative control, polymerase, nucleotide and buffers (in case of RNA kit: it contains RNA to cDNA chemicals: reverse-transcriptase, ribonuclease inhibitor, dNTP etc.). User has to add your DNA or RNA template to them. The kits expire after 1 year, if they are stored at -20°C. All of our products are made in our laboratory in Germany. We can give you the certificate of German origin, as some countries may need this certificate.



Frequently Asked Questions:

FAQ 1: Contents of ready to use real time PCR kit for Coronaviruses? Answer: Genekam Kit contains all components to run a real time PCR: mastermix, RNA mix, primer, probes, negative control and positive control. Internal control for RNA isolation is not included. It needs to be ordered extra. The kits can be used immediately on arrival.

FAQ 2: Which internal control can I order? Answer: As coronaviruses are RNA viruses, therefore one has to use RNA internal control. It is FR799. It detects the presence of RNA in isolated samples (indication of successful isolation).

FAQ 3: Do I need RNA isolation kit? Answer: yes, user needs RNA isolation kit. Genekam has RNA isolation kit based on mini column SB0079 or magnetic beads SB0101. However one can use RNA isolation kit from other manufacturers available on the market.

FAQ 4: Which gene do the PCR kits target? Answer: Genekam kits e.g. FR475 or FR500 double check or FR700 triple check are highly specific for Wuhan strain, but we donot release any information, which gene is the target as this is our technology. Please make sure that once Genekam Kit e.g. FR475 gives positive results. These must taken very very seriously.

FAQ 5: Which thermocycler can the user use with the kits? Answer: Genekam real time PCR kits can be used on various real time thermocyclers available on the market. Genekam provides only standard temperature in manual, hence user must have the knowledge how to do the software setting as many machine manufacturers give training how to use the machine and how to do about such settings. In the case of difficulty, one has to contact the machine manufacturer: how to do the software as there are somany machines available on the market as it is impossible to run the kits on all machines.

FAQ 6: Does Genekam tell them name of institutes using its products? Answer: Genekam does not usually release any information about names of institutes.

FAQ 7: Do Genekam kits need a special laboratory setup? Answer: Yes, one needs laboratory with a real time PCR machine. It may be mobile also!

FAQ 8: Do you primers and probes come from other world organisation? Answer: No, Genekam kits are its own technology detecting highly specific targets, which will give highly specific and sensitive results. No part of the kit is coming from any other world organisation.
