Bioneer’s Combination Tests for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza Receive CE-IVD Marking

Bioneer (Daejeon, Korea) has received CE-IVD marking for two combination tests for SARS-CoV-2 and influenza - the AccuPower RV1 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit and AccuPower RV1 Multiplex Kit.

The AccuPower RV1 Real-Time RT-PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit that helps diagnose COVID-19 and Influenza infections. The 5-in-1 multiplex kit is able to detect five COVID-19 targets (E gene, RdRp & N gene) and Influenza A/B in a tube using samples collected via a nasopharyngeal swab or oropharyngeal swab taken from suspected infected patients. The easy-to-use multiplex kit reduces hands-on steps due to five-target multiplex detection in a tube. The user-convenient premix type kit enables pipetting free diagnosis since all the components for the assay are contained within a tube. It uses Bioneer’s proprietary Dual-HotStart technology to achieve high sensitivity and specificity, and the vacuum-dried premix allows for stable and reproducible results. The test kit is compatible with the ExiStation and ExiStation 48 systems.
