Detect viral strains with high sensitivity using RapiDxFire™ 1-step RT-PCR System. Its dynamic range grants high reproducibility over five 10-fold dilutions.
Mutations within a virus’ genome may influence viral characteristics such as transmissibility, immune escape and more. An RT-PCR-based assay can rapidly determine whether that viral sample contains the wild type or mutation, as long as that genome has already been sequenced through methods like whole genome sequencing.
Using qPCR is essential for genomic surveillance because it helps communities control outbreak and find opportunities to prevent further transmission. Monkeypox cases have been rising in non-endemic countries worldwide so it is key for assay developers to respond quickly.
