The PerkinElmer New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in human oropharyngeal, nasopharyngeal, and anterior nasal swab samples. Using the FDA SARS-CoV-2 Reference Panel for comparative assessment, the PerkinElmer New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection kit showed the lowest limit of detection (LoD) on the market.

As noted by Dr. Monde Qhobosheane, President and CEO of Analytik Jena US, “With the surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the world and in particular the United States, scalable high throughput, fast turnaround and competitively priced testing is critical to reducing the spread of COVID-19 and helping businesses, schools and the general economy fully re-open.
