ADT Biotech launches dual target assay for novel Coronavirus 20129-nCoV

02/2020 – ADT Biotech has launched a kit for detection of 2019-nCoV based on WHO interim guidelines recommending a test algorithm using a screening test for a broader detection of SARS-related Coronaviruses followed by a highly specific confirmation test.

The LyteStar 2019-nCoV RT-PCR Kit adopts a dual target strategy, targeting the E-gene of SARS-related Coronaviruses for the broader screening assay and the RdRP-gene for the 2019-nCoV specific confirmation test. The kit is available as a complete dual target kit, and also as individual kits for screening, e.g. the LyteStar 2019-nCoV RT-PCR Kit Screen (E-gene assay) and confirmation; the LyteStar 2019-nCoV RT-PCR KitConfirm (RdRP-gene assay), hence offering greatest flexibility in choosing the most appropriate testing algorithm and optimal reagents utilization.

ADT Biotech launches first molecular detection kit for Scrub Typhus

01/2020 – With the LyteStar Scrub Typhus PCR Kit, ADT Biotech is launching the first realtime PCR based molecular diagnostic kit for the specific detection of Orientia tsutsugamuchi, the causative agent of Scrub typhus.

Scrub typhus is caused by infection with the bacteria Orientia tsutsugamushi, following the bite of an infected trombiculid mite during its larval stage. Geographic distribution of the disease spans the entire Asia Pacific region, Middle East, Africa and South America. Symptoms include fever, headache, maculopapular rash, eschar (lesion), lymphadenopathy, and complications involving the central nervous system. A molecular test offers fast, sensitive and highly specific diagnostic results, overcoming limitations of current serological tests.
