Generon presents the new VETfinder kit for the detection of 2019-nCoV (causative agent of COVID-19) and SARS-like viruses using RdRP sequences approved by the international scientific community. The kit is research use only and intended for the detection of the viruses on environmental swabs and veterinary samples.
The collaboration with technological partners allows Generon to provide a complete solution including:
- swabs with inactivators ‘NRSII Transwab’ (Medical Wire);
- experimental process control ‘Intype IC RNA’
- RNA extraction kits INDIspin e INDImag (INDICAL – ex Qiagen Animal Health)
- Real-Time PCR instruments ‘CFX96 Deep-Well’ and ‘bCube’ (Hyris).
We observed that, although scientific literature after the past SARS and MERS pandemic suggested the importance of enviromental monitoring and domestic animals testing, this was neglected in the current pandemic management. Parodoxically, these are the most important for our reference market food industry, GDO and service laboratories, that’s why we developed a complete solution addressing this “empty space”. Despite the lockdown related problems, we acted promptly and now our clients can refer to a single supplier for all workflow steps in nCoV-19 monitoring in surfaces, fomites but also in animals.Marcello Gatti – Generon CEO
