UTM Banner coronavirus

Recommended transport media for coronavirus disease (COVID-19):

UTM™, Universal Transport Medium, is a room temperature stable viral transport medium for collection, transport, maintenance and long term freezer storage of Viruses, such as Influenza H1N1, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma specimens.

In general CDC is now recommending collecting only the NP swab. Collection of oropharyngeal swabs (OP) is a lower priority and if collected should be combined in the same tube as the NP. Collection of only OP swab is acceptable if other swabs are not available.

Anti-SARS-CoV-2 kit

Introducing a rapid one-step test for COVID-19

Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Test

Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Test is a rapid, one-step lateral flow assay intended for the presumptive qualitative detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in patients suspected of a COVID-19 infection.

IgM antibodies are generated initially by the body as a result of infection at about the time symptoms appear. They will dissipate within approximately one month. IgG antibodies are generated by the body about one week after symptoms appear and last for an extended amount of time.

By using a patient’s finger prick blood, serum, or plasma specimen, the Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Test offers a turnaround time of only 15 minutes.

Hardy Diagnostics has permission to sell this test under the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) program , which is currently under review.

The new tentative ship date is now May 5th. We will update you when more information becomes available.

This product is not available for purchase and resale by our distributor partners.

Helix Elite SARS-CoV-2 QC

SARS-CoV-2 Synthetic RNA (N Gene Targets), Helix Elite™ Synthetic Standard

Microbiologics, Inc. (Saint Cloud, MN, USA) has launched a SARS-CoV-2 IVD control within its popular Helix Elite line of molecular controls to help accelerate COVID-19 assay development and increase access to testing. The new IVD product provides quality control measures for the development, verification, and validation of diagnostic tests, with the unmatched precision and convenience of the Helix Elite line.

Microbiologics’ SARS-CoV-2 Helix Elite control features a large RNA molecule that matches the sequence of the virus N gene (which codes for the nucleocapsid phosphoprotein found in the shell of the virus) and works with CDC-specified test components to generate positive PCR signals. The synthetic RNA control material is non-infectious and classified as BSL-1, remaining stable at room temperature to allow convenient shipping and storage. The Helix Elite SARS-CoV-2 IVD control is manufactured under ISO 13485 standards, and is designed for extended use and flexibility to match the hectic pace of high-volume testing. Microbiologics aims to continue developing resources for the global response to COVID-19, including IVD RNA controls with other gene sequences from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

“With all the unknowns of this new coronavirus strain, third party IVD controls with the right genomic targets are more critical than ever,” said Marylou Gibson, Microbiologics’ Chief Virologist. “This new SARS-CoV-2 control comes with the proven quality of the Helix Elite product line to assure your test results. Cat. no. HE0060S

Synthetic RNA molecular standard intended for use as a positive control in molecular applications.

Kit includes:

  • 1 vial of dried synthetic RNA (up to 100 reactions)
  • 1 vial of molecular standard water for rehydration
  • Certificate of Analysis.

Strain Characteristics:

The SARS-CoV-2 synthetic RNA material is a 1044-nucleotide portion of the SARS-CoV-2 N (nucleocapsid) gene. It contains three markers N1, N2 and N3 that are commonly used in diagnostic assays.

CaviWipes™
Disinfectant Wipes

Presaturated with CaviCide®, CaviWipes™ are the only cloths proven to kill both TB (in 5 minutes) and HBV (in 3 minutes) with quick, easy-to-use, timesaving convenience. CaviWipes™ are durable, nonwoven, nonabrasive towels that won’t bunch up during use. They offer better surface contact than other wipes, requiring less force to apply solution to a surface. Better fluid capacity keeps the cloths fully saturated with CaviCide® rather than its pooling at the bottom of the canister. CaviWipes™ does the job of three products – cleaner, disinfectant and decontaminant – saving money by reducing repetitive inventory and time. They’re recommended for use on nonporous surfaces and fixtures and are perfect for operating rooms, surgical centers, neonatal units, medical and dental operatories and other critical-care areas.
