New SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction for saliva reduces false negatives by 33%
Saliva testing for SARS-CoV-2 has relied heavily on complex extraction protocols. Direct extraction protocols reduce complexity but suffer from poor and inconsistent results. Arcis delivers the best sensitivity of any direct method.
Arcis' One-Step extraction reagent enables:
Speed – From saliva to qRT-PCR in 1 minute
Sensitivity – Improve limit of detection by >30%
Safety – Inactivate virus without hazardous chemicals
Scalability and cost – Liquify saliva for automation, reduceneed for consumables
