LGC SeraCare offer a complete Quality Solution for COVID-19 diagnostic assay validation

AccuPlex™ technology mimics wild-type pathogenic viruses, but is safe, non-infectious, and replication deficient. These materials serve as true, full-process quality solutions that challenge the entire diagnostic workflow, making them the preferred alternative to infectious materials.

Together, the AccuPlex SARS-CoV-2 Verification Panel and AccuPlex SARS-CoV-2 Reference Material Kit offer an ideal solution for clinical laboratories looking for a safe, effective tool to verify and monitor SARS-CoV-2 molecular assay performance. Products contain positive materials directed against the published CDC and WHO consensus sequences and the S gene. Negative materials targeting the human RNase P gene are also included.


“We just went ‘live’ with the SARS-CoV-2 assay…I’ve never brought in and validated an assay in 7 days. The LGC SeraCare reference material works perfectly. I needed something other than the assay’s positive control to create a positive assay result before I felt comfortable releasing the assay for patient testing, and your product did the trick.”

For RNA extraction

Alleviate RNA extraction and purification bottlenecks with the ultra high-throughput oKtopure™ system that was originally developed for the leaders in seed genetics. The system performs lysis, extraction, and purification on eight 96-well plates at a time using sbeadex viral RNA magnetic beads and buffer kits. Designed for genetic target testing of millions of samples per year.

Automation and reliability enables day-in and day-out operation with minimal human intervention.

Significantly increase your ability to ramp up testing capacity and speed.

A single oktopure/IntelliQube combination can provide ~2000 sample. extractions and tests per 8-hour period depending on assay and process setup.

For oligonucleotide synthesis

To support the demands of high-throughput oligo synthesis, we offer the MerMade™ 192E and MerMade™ 192X synthesizers. The 192E (and the robotic version 192R) is especially suited to less complex probes and primers and can synthesise 192 oligos in less than 3 hours, producing a very high quality product with minimal reagent usage.
