NGS-based Target Capture for SARS-CoV-2 Detection and Characterization
Application Note Apr 17, 2020
SARS-CoV-2, a single-stranded RNA virus, is the cause of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To combat the virus, a need exists not only for rapid testing, but also highly sensitive tests capable of characterizing the entire viral genome, in order to monitor the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and its evolution over time.
Download this app note to discover an effective capture-based method for identifying SARS-CoV-2 that can:
- Detect as low as 10 copies of the virus
- Recover the full virus genome sequence
- Successfully identify various mutations
