End to end product

During the current pandemic, we have diverted resources and expertise into developing simple, low cost and scalable testing products for COVID-19. The Chronomics test is one of the world’s first screening tests for the identification of COVID-19 infection from saliva. This test uses the protocol defined by the US Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and has been extensively validated globally for the detection of COVID-19. This test detects viral RNA in the sample to detect presence of the COVID-19 virus. We provide this dedicated end-to-end product to support the global fight against this pandemic.

Chronomics now offers fully supported sample handling and processing workflows for saliva and other biofluids. Reagent products details:

SaliVIR – Collect kit
: This sampling kit contains a collection tube with all necessary regulatory conditions for the distribution and handling of Category B pathogens such as suspected positive COVID-19 samples.

SaliVIR – Bead Xtract Viral DNA/RNA Extraction kit
: This extraction kit is designed for the rapid and reliable isolation of viral DNA or RNA from saliva or other biofluids. The magnetic bead-based technology enables the purification of high-quality ribonucleic acid free from protein and other impurities required for downstream qRT-PCR. Fast, low cost and easily scaled up or down, the SaliVIR - Bead Xtract Viral DNA/RNA kit is ideally suited to COVID-19 testing.

SaliVIR - COVID-19 qRT-PCR kit
: This one step qRT-PCR kit uses proven primer and probe sequences targeting COVID-19: N1, N2 and RP assays defined by the US Centre for Disease Control (CDC) which have been extensively validated for the detection of COVID-19. The kit is provided with both positive and negative controls.

Chronomics has developed a suite of software modules to ensure that this end-to-end product can be set up and run rapidly and efficiently. SaliVIR COVID19 Sampling and Reporting modules are included as standard within the end-to-end product solution. SaliVIR COVID19 Analytics and Population modules are additional modules designed to support governments with population screening programs.
