CE marked COVID-19 testing
Loopamp™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit
The kit is an unique method of gene amplification that amplifies nucleic acid with high specificity, efficiency, and rapidity under isothermal condition. An one-step, single tube, reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay was developed for detecting SARS-CoV-2.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic around the world, Eiken Chemical has developed Loopamp™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit to enable clinical and public health laboratories to quickly diagnose SARS-CoV-2 infection.
To control and suppress spread, we must fight against COVID-19. Active case finding, diagnosis, isolation and contact tracing can control COVID-19. In particular, strengthening surveillance and contact tracing will help every authority to rapidly adapt to monitoring outbreaks.
We must continue to stand together to tackle the greatest public health challenge of the century. Our challenge is great. Together, forward in the fight against COVID-19. We believe our test Loopamp™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit contributes to your health.
Loopamp™ SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kit was validated to be used with the following Real-Time PCR instruments.
