Avidin has expanded the company’s portfolio with a specialized clinical molecular diagnostics department focused on the detection and monitoring of infectious diseases. Our molecular diagnostics laboratory offers RT-qPCR testing in diverse disease areas to assist patient care.
All devices and reagents, unlike many other products on European market, have been certificated as medical devices and in vitro diagnostic kits (CE/IVD) by the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (OGYEI) and are suitable for professional use for diagnostic purposes.
Our ATM-1 Virus Transport Medium (IVD/CE) is suitable for the sampling and safe storage of SARS-CoV-2 viruses from respiratory specimens and lysate samples collected from patients. The stabilized nucleic acids are stable up to 72 hours at room temperature and completely safe for the medical workers and laboratory professionals. Another advantage of the device is that the collection tubes are individually barcoded, and can be directly processed by any lab IT software.
AviRNA Viral RNA Extraction kit (IVD/CE) has been designed for the fast manual isolation of viral RNA from respiratory specimens such as nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs samples. The procedure less than 15 minutes, because there are not needed to add lysis buffer to starting material. The whole specimens collected in ATM-1 Virus Transport Medium could be directly added to the binding columns and binding of the RNA onto the surface of a spin filter membrane. After two short washing steps the viral RNA is eluted from the membrane in a small volume of RNase-free water. Extraction chemistry and extraction protocol are optimized to get maximum yields.
The multiplexed Cov2QuantTM SARS-Cov-2 Quantification kit (IVD/CE) contains two primer/probe sets that target coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) gene and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRP) gene, and one human specific target as a control to assess specimen quality in (Probe Mix). In addition, a non-infectious positive control (Positive Control), nuclease-free water as a no template control (Negative Control) and enzymes (RTase, qPCR 1-Step Mix) are included in the kit.
