Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit is designed for the rapid and reliable isolation of viral RNA from serum, swabs, plasma, saliva, and other body fluids. The Mag-Bind® magnetic beads technology enables purification of high-quality nucleic acids that are free of proteins, nucleases, and other impurities. In addition to easily being adapted with automated systems, this procedure can also be scaled up or down depending on the amount of starting sample. The purified nucleic acids are ready for direct use in downstream applications such as amplification or other enzymatic reactions.
Omega Bio-tek is assisting scientists, researchers, and healthcare workers around the globe in accelerating the screening and detection of the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. We are supporting several Laboratory Developed Tests (LDTs) by providing high-throughput, automated viral nucleic acid extraction methodologies. To meet the exceptional and immediate need for supplies, Omega Bio-tek created a more robust viral RNA extraction kit, Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit, and has the capacity to support 6 million patient tests per month.
