Covid-19 FluoGene® Q

Covid-19 FluoGene® Q

SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus causing the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). It is closely related to the SARS virus and was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. By now it has spread globally resulting in an ongoing pandemic.

Covid-19 FluoGene® Q kit is a CE-IVD marked dual-target multiplex qRT-PCR for the qualitative detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) specific RNA. The system works with any RNA isolation method, but ideally it is combined with automated viral DNA/RNA extraction consisting of the BEXS12 instrument and the BEXS12 Ready Viral DNA/RNA Bead Kit.

The isolated RNA target is transcribed into cDNA and the target genes are amplified in a single step qRT-PCR. The primer probe mixes detect the SARS-CoV-2 specific genes M and N1, as well as the human RNase P gene as an internal control reaction. A positive control is included in the test system. The kit is validated on the FluoQube, QTower, ABI7500, and the QuantStudio 6 Pro.

UPDATE: Our newest Version of the test, includes an additional reaction for the detection of the N501Y mutation, which is present in all three variant-of-concern. Also the reaction mix was optimized and now takes less than 1 hour.


  • One-Step qRT-PCR rapid test
  • Detection of SARS-CoV-2 genes: Mand N1
  • Detection of internal control human RNasePgene in each well
  • Positive control & Nuclease-free water provided
  • Validated in combination mit with BEXS 12 automatisated RNA Extraction   
  • Validated on FluoQube, QTower, ABI7500, and Quantstudio 6 Pro
  • CE IVD (outside of the U.S.A. and Canada)
  • Detects all known mutants so far (as of today: 28th Jan. 2021), including:
    • B.1.1.7(/VOC-202012/01) – first detected in UK
    • B.1.351(/501.V2/N501Y.V2) – first detected in South Africa
    • B.1.1.28(/Lineage P.1) – first detected in Brasil
  • UPDATE – Version 2:
    • Individual detection of N501Y mutation to differ between classical SARS-CoV-2 virus and the the mutants B.1.1.7/B.1.351/B.1.1.28
    • Optimzied reaction mix – test now takes less than 1 hour

Please ask dedicated for version 2, if you are interested in it.
