SAN DIEGO, CA – April 6, 2020 – Today, Gnomegen announced it has received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the Gnomegen COVID-19 RT-Digital-PCR Detection Kit, which provides a more sensitive and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Compared to current qPCR methods, the Gnomegen COVID-19 RT-Digital-PCR Detection Kit is 4X more sensitive with a limit of detection of 2.5 copies per reaction in comparison to qPCR platforms at 10 copies per reaction using the same kit. At this limit of detection, qPCR identifies 62.5% positive while digital PCR identifies 95% of positive sample replicates. This improvement in the limit of detection would better protect the population from potential false negative results.
The Gnomegen COVID-19 RT-Digital-PCR Detection Kit for use on the high throughput QuantStudio 3D Digital PCR System is capable of running up to 24 samples per run allowing up to 48 samples to be tested per day on a single device further increasing the speed of COVID-19 diagnosis.
The Gnomegen COVID-19 Test is a qualitative test using digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) technology to detect SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19) via oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal samples. Gnomegen’s coronavirus test yields laboratory-quality results in approximately 3 hours.
