Protean Ltd. has developed technology for a simple detection of various pathogens and specific DNA and RNA sequences based on isothermal amplification. The technology profits from in-house production of amplification enzymes BstI DNA polymerase and ProRT Reverse Transcriptase and fully complies with CE IVD certification standards. A patent application was filed for the technological solution of this diagnostics.
The AUMED test kit RT-LAMP Assay SARS-CoV2 is intended for diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2 virus in isolated viral RNA samples - for 45 samples. However, this test can also detect primary samples without RNA isolation.
RT-LAMP (reverse transcription and loop-mediated isothermal amplification) allows amplification of nucleic acids with a high specificity, efficiency and speed under isothermal conditions - ie. at constant temperature, achievable in incubators, hybridization ovens or dry blocks. The results are reliably read based on the color change by naked eye. The test includes detection of SARS-CoV2 virus and detection of internal control (IC) for correct sampling and processing.
