FTD SARS-CoV-2 Assay

FTD SARS-CoV-2 Assay1

For the specific detection of the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19


In late 2019, China notified the World Health Organization (WHO) of a novel strain of coronavirus. This virus, now named SARS-CoV-2, targets the epithelial cells of the respiratory tract and causes infection that can lead to Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Siemens Healthineers new molecular assay uses real-time PCR to detect RNA from this virus.
