Update MDx-productassortiment Mikrogen

Intro tekst

Naast SARS-CoV-2 gaan ook andere respiratoire virussen rond deze winter. Mikrogen heeft haar huidige panels geupdate, zodat ze weer voldoen aan de huidige behoeftes. Met de ampliMelt SARS-CoV-2 Variants kunnen verschillende varianten gevonden worden. Met de ampliCube Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (CE-IVD) kan nu ook met een fast protocol snel SARS-CoV-2 opgespoord worden.


Mikrogen’s update on the current SARS-CoV-2 molecular diagnostic tests as well as to provide you with a comprehensive overview on their complete MDx product range with a focus on respiratory diseases:

  • Proven excellence in SARS-CoV-2 detection with their ampliCube Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (CE-IVD) kit.
    We are regularly  conducting in silico analyses with newly emerging SARS-CoV-2 virus strains. Current evaluations prove that even the variants of concern including the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) will be reliably detected by our assay (please find attached our official statement).
  • With the ampliMelt SARS-CoV-2 Variants reagent sets you can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 variants B.1.1.529 (Omicron), B.1.617.2 (Delta), P.1 (Gamma), B.1.351 (Beta) and B.1.1.7 (Alpha) by real-time multiplex RT-PCR and subsequent melting curve analysis:

    ampliMelt SARS-CoV-2 Variants 1 (RUO) – Alpha / Delta
    ampliMelt SARS-CoV-2 Variants 2 (RUO) – Gamma / Beta
    ampliMelt SARS-CoV-2 Variants 3 (RUO) – Omicron / Delta / Alpha

Note that the Variants 3 test is also capable of differentiating the BA.1 and BA.2 Omicron subtypes. The attached product information will give you more details on the individual target sequence variations utilized for differentiation.

  • New fast protocols for the ampliCube Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 kit allowing the performance of more tests in less time (see attachment).
  • The ampliCube Respiratory Flu & SARS-CoV-2 combination test for the simultaneous detection of Influenza A, Influenza B and SARS-CoV-2. These respiratory infections often show similar symptoms, therefore a safe and fast differential diagnosis is essential.
  • An overview of our ampliCube Pathogen Groups (see attachment). These unique combinations of ampliCube kits cover the most common bacterial and viral respiratory and sexually transmitted infections and are available to you at special transfer price conditions.
  • Last but not least please find here Mikrogen’s latest MDx brochure giving you a comprehensive overview on the ampliCube and alphaCube product lines together with our alphaClean extraction and automation solutions.
