Solana SARS-CoV-2 Assay Kit


(96 Tests per Kit, Controls Included)

FDA Emergency Use Authorization

The Solana SARS-CoV-2 Assay is an isothermal Reverse Transcriptase - Helicase-Dependent Amplification (RT-HDA) assay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal (NP) and nasal (NS) swab specimens from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.

Molecular identification of SARS-CoV-2 occurs by the use of targeting highly conserved regions of the SARS-CoV-2 virus non-structural Polyprotein (pp1ab).

The assay consists of two major steps: (1) specimen preparation, and (2) amplification and detection of target sequences specific to SARS-CoV-2 using isothermal Reverse Transcriptase — Helicase-Dependent Amplification (RT-HDA) in the presence of target-specific fluorescence probes which is performed in the Solana instrument.

Results are displayed on the touchscreen, can be saved to the instrument, printed, and are capable of being sent to the LIS and exported through one of Solana’s five USB ports. Solana SARS-CoV-2 Assay is also supported by the power of Virena®.

Additional positive controls (QDL-M5301) and negative controls (QDL-M5203) can be purchased upon request.
