In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are tests done on samples such as blood or tissue for the purpose of detecting diseases or other conditions. To facilitate efforts on IVD research, the US-based chemical supplier Alfa Chemistry has recently introduced three IVD products for laboratory use, adding to its already diverse range of biological reagents.

The biological reagents previously launched by Alfa Chemistry encompass:

  • transilluminator
  • proteomic products (i.e., Protein Marker/Ladder, Western Substrate, Protein Staining Reagent, OneStep Blocker, UltraScence TMB ELISA Substrate)
  • genomic products (i.e., DNA Marker/Ladder, Staining Reagent, Agarose, PCR Reagent, RNA Reagent, Real-Time PCR Reagent)
  • nucleic acid purification system (i.e., Plasmid DNA Purification System, PCR Clean-Up & Gel Extraction Kit, Genomic DNA Purification System, RNA Purification System, Virus Nucleic acid Purification System).

All these products are designed to cater to the growing demand for reliable and accurate diagnostic tools, particularly in the field of medical and diagnostic research.

The notable additions to Alfa Chemistry’s IVD product portfolio are:

  • COVID-19 Mutation RT-qPCR Detection Kit
  • COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit Plus
  • COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit (RUO)

COVID-19 Mutation RT-qPCR Detection Kit Alpha Delta Kappa

As the world battles the ongoing global pandemic, the detection and monitoring of COVID-19 variants have become crucial in controlling the spread of the virus. This novel detection kit offers a streamlined and efficient approach to identify the Alpha (B.1.1.7), Delta (B.1.617.2), and Kappa (B.1.617.1) variants of SARS-CoV-2.

By accurately detecting these variants, healthcare professionals and researchers can make informed decisions regarding public health measures, treatment options, and vaccine effectiveness.

COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit Plus

In addition to the COVID-19 Mutation RT-qPCR Detection Kit Alpha Delta Kappa, Alfa Chemistry has also introduced the COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit Plus. This kit enables the rapid and reliable detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, aiding in the diagnosis of COVID-19 cases.

With its high sensitivity and specificity, the kit delivers accurate results, allowing for timely and effective disease management. Data can be obtained in less than 2 hours. The simplicity and efficiency of this kit make it an ideal choice for gene expression (mRNA) analysis, copy number analysis, and SNP genotype analysis.

The kit is shipped with dry ice and gel packs, and is stable for up to 1 year at -20 degrees Celsius.

COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit RUO

Combining expertise in diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccination fighting against the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, scientists at Alfa Chemistry have specifically developed the COVID-19 RT-qPCR Detection Kit RUO for human respiratory tract specimens.

The kit is compatible with standard RT-qPCR machines and is characterized by high specificity for the RdRP and N target markers. Data can be obtained in less than 2 hours.

Alfa Chemistry’s IVD products are manufactured adhering to stringent quality control measures, ensuring both reliability and accuracy. “We are excited to expand our product line to include IVD products,” said a spokesperson for Alfa Chemistry. “The demand for reliable and accurate diagnostic tools has increased significantly in recent times, and we are committed to meeting these needs by offering high-quality products that provide accurate and timely results.”
