RT-PCR Panel for Diagnostics of Respiratory Viruses

Key Parameters:

  • Parallel detection of SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV
  • Manual and automated sample processing
  • Ultra-sensitive analysis (LOD 2 to 10 copies depending on virus type)
  • Design taking most recent virus sequences into consideration
  • Tested for nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva
  • Standard RT-PCR version and DBdirect™ version (without the need for RNA isolation)

Detection Parameters

*synthetic RNA which is added to the test sample isolation or directly to the RT-PCR reaction in the DB-1250 and DB-1252 kits
** synthetic RNA which is added to the sample in the DBdirect™ RT-PCR reaction in the DB-1251 and DB-1253 kits


  •  Kits for detection in 4 or 5 channels
  • Compatible with most RT-PCR devices
  • Thorough in silico kit development:
    • In-house bioinformatics analysis of tens of thousands of influenza genomes and thousands of RSV genomes
    • Regular monitoring of the occurrence of mutations and other modifications in SARS-CoV-2 genom

Kit Versions

DBdirect™ RT-PCR

  • Highly robust, patent-protected RT-PCR mix formulation
  • Direct RT-PCR detection without the need for prior RNA isolation
  • Significantly faster and simpler laboratory process
  • Suitable for nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva
  • It works with standard collection media on swabs (except for inactivation media)
  • Comparable sensitivity to standard RT-PCR with RNA isolation
  • Solution for small and large laboratories – manual and automated sample processing (>10,000 saliva samples per day)
  • DB-1251, DB-1253 kits

 Standard RT-PCR

  • Robust RT-PCR mix formulation
  • Input material – isolated nucleic acid
  • High sensitivity (LOD95% two copies SARS-CoV-2)
  • Fast sample analysis (80 minutes)
  • Compatible with CE-IVD automated
  • RNA isolation kit (DB-1206)
  • DB-1250, DB-1252 kits
