2019-nCoV About The Program
Since mid-December 2019, cases of unexplained pneumonia with fever, fatigue,cough,and dyspnea as the main symptoms have occurred in Wuhan, China for a short period of time. Governments at all levels and administrative departments of health care attach great importance to quickly organizing Medical units and research institutes carry out investigations, treatments and collaborative research. Quickly determined the pathogen of these cases as new coronaviruses.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed and named it as 2019-nCoV, and the pneumonia caused by the pathogen infection is called Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia
Maccura 2019-nCoV Product Introduction
Extraction + Amplification
Two steps of detection: 1st step is to extract virus RNA from the sample. 2nd step is to perform RNA amplification. A total of two reagent products are needed, both of which are produced by Maccura. Note:Features of emergency approval products:1.The product validity period on the registration certificate is described as "tentatively valid for 6 months"
2.Registration certificate is valid for “1 year"
Question: What are the prerequisites for users to carry out 2019-nCoV testing?
Answer:1.The user needs a special molecular laboratory.
2.A PCR amplification instrument with four channels or more is required.
3.An automatic nucleic acid extraction instrument is required. (If there is no full-automatic instrument, manual extraction is also possible, but the manual extraction process is more complicated, requiring technical staff to train customers, and manual extraction needs to provide auxiliary equipment such as a magnetic stand. Manual extraction is not recommended in the early stage, and the company waits for notification afterwards.)
Question:What types of PCR amplification equipment can match our reagents?
Answer:1.Theoretically,the instrument has four or more fluorescence detection channels.At present,it is clear:ABI 7500,ABI Q5,Roche Lightcycler 480II,Hongshi SLAN-96P,SLAN-96S
2.If the user does not have the above-mentioned instrument,the user's existing instrument model + picture can be fed back to the marketing department, and the marketing department will assist to determine whether the instrument can be used.Theoretically,Bio-rad,Hangzhou Bioer,and Xi'an Tianlong all have amplifiers with four channels or more.
Question: What are the end users of 2019-nCoV?
Answer: The main end users are the inspection department and the centers for Disease Control.
Question:What is the number of samples per hour for Maccura 2019-nCoV detection solution?
Answer:Extraction (Maccura Auto Extraction) + Amplification:96 samples in 2 hours
