Microbiologics launches SARS-CoV-2 whole virus antigen controls for POCT

Sept. 1, 2021

Microbiologics has launched a new SARS-CoV-2 quality-control (QC) product designed for use with antigen point-of-care (POC) methods.

The inactivated SARS-CoV-2 Whole Virus Antigen Control is highly concentrated with fully intact genomic and viral proteins, making it suitable for both antigen tests and nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs), Microbiologics said. It serves as a non-viable, external, positive control to evaluate an assay’s performance and mitigate the potential for false negative or false positive results. In NAAT applications, the control tests the full process including extraction, amplification, and detection. In antigen-based applications, the high titer formula provides a clear positive reaction to monitor the detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral antigens.
