For single-step 48-well extraction of viral RNA & DNA from nasopharyngeal swabs within 5 minutes; Starting material: dry, non-resuspended or swabs in stabilization medium (half-filled 96-well purification plates)
The patent-pending EchoLUTION viral RNA/DNA process is up to 20 x faster than commonly used silica-based bind-wash-elute procedures. A daily throughput of several thousand samples per day can be easily achieved.
- SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction in just 5 minutes
- 48 swabs processed in 15 minutes including primary tube handling
- Only standard lab* equipment necessary
- Validated for COVID-19 tests from dry swabs or transport media**
- Usable for all other RNA or DNA viruses
- Sustainable procedure: 70 % less plastic, no hazardous liquids
* Plate centrifuge, multi-channel pipet
** e. g., Copan UTM, eSwab medium, denaturating (GuHCl; GITC) media
