++++ World Innovation: World´s First commercial highly sensitive magnetic beads ELISA test for coronaviruses ++++ GENEKAM Biotechnology AG, Germany

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.

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.

FAQ 9: Do the present mutations effect the results through Genekam PCR kit FR475? Answer: No, Please see the followings: Following mutations shown in the table does not effect the results of following mutations, hence FR475 will give excellent results.

FAQ 10: Press release (05.03.2021): Genekam Coronavirus PCR kit detects samples with different mutations like N501, E484 and N417N/T without loss of performance:

FAQ 11: What is the sensitivity of FR475 kit to detect SARS CoV-2 in unknown samples? Answer: Sensitivity of FR475 kit to detect SARS CoV-2 in unknown samples is 0.000003 pg/µl

Coronaviruses are getting mutated, hence there are different mutations like B117, P1 and B1.135. These mutations are causing that many PCR tests do not give the correct the results, hence it leads to false results. Therefore, many manufacturers around the world as well as FDA have given the warnings as approved kits do not give correct results. Genekam developed one of the first PCR for detection kit FR475 for SARS CoV-2 in Jan, 2020. This kit FR475 detects the samples with different mutations perfectly, therefore these mutations have no impact on the results conducted with Genekam kit. This kit has been used last year in many countries as the countries using Genekam kit have last year very low incidents of coronaviruses, but with the time, WHO/CDC/FDA/CE approved kits came on the market, after that the incidents have increased so strongly that many countries lost their grip on the spreading of this virus. These mutations are increasing with time; hence all kits being used in coronaviral pandemic outbreak must give an assurance that approved kits or methods from CDC and WHO detects coronaviruses (SARS Co-V, Wuhan strain) properly and mutations does not have any impact on their performance.

Genekam FR475 kit is not the only one, which is giving excellent results. In 2016, Genekam created double check for Zika viruses as there are many strains, which are not being detected through normal commercial kits of many manufacturers. In 2017, Genekam kit for Influenza virus H5N1 outperformed the other kits in UEA as it detects samples from Africa, which were infected with H5N1 against the other commercial kits, which were fail to detect such infected samples. The tests are conducted in a laboratory in Abu Dubi. These examples show as this is very important to have a deep knowledge of virology to develop an excellent kit. Many of companies developing kits for pandemic viruses do not have very deep knowledge of virology, but they get approve from FDA, WHO and EU, hence it is time to compare the performance of different kits available on the market, so that poor quality kits (many of them are coming from big biotech companies) are removed from the market, but authorities are not interested to do this, hence this must be discussed in the press. Genekam is requesting such action for last 6 years.

Major mutations N501Y, E484K, N417N/T along many dozens of other common mutations are matter of concern as N501Y occurs in receptor binding domain leading to increase in rate of binding between the receptors ACE2 and virus. It means rate of transmission will increase strongly. As these are mutations in spike and nucleoprotein regions, hence the immunity can decrease and recovered persons can reinfect, such mutations may lead to have negative effect on vaccination as well as therapies available now. Therefore, it is important that laboratories use PCR kits, which detect samples with mutations too to provide good results. It is possible with Genekam FR475. Genekam Biotechnology AG is a German company focusing on pandemic viruses for last 16 years as it has large number of tests for different pandemic outbreak causing viruses like Influenza, Zika, Ebola, dengue, coronaviruses and Rift valley virus. It is working on developing the therapeutic antibodies and small molecules to cure these viruses one day. It develops and manufactures its products in Germany
