Convergys® POC RT-PCR COVID-19 Detection Kit


Convergys® POC RT-PCR COVID-19 Detection Kit*
for use with the Convergys® POC RT-PCR Nucleic Acid Detection System

The COVID-19 respiratory disease is caused by infection with the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are quite unspecific and resemble e.g. those of Influenza. Furthermore, in many cases the manifestation of symptoms is very weak. Hence, proper diagnosis of COVID-19 can be a challenge.

The Convergys® POC RT-PCR COVID-19 Detection Kit directly detects SARS-CoV-2 genetic material.

*For research use only.
