Quantitative PCR (qPCR) enables rapid, sensitive assays for the detection of RNA viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. In typical workflows, viral RNA is purified from specimens, mixed with qPCR reagents, and then analyzed (see figure below). The methods used during sample preparation can impact the speed, accuracy, and reproducibility of the assay. In this webinar, our technical experts discuss how to streamline and optimize preparation of viral RNA samples from extraction to reaction setup. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Ways to overcome common bottlenecks in preparing viral RNA samples for RT-qPCR 
  • New reagents available for COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 research, including extraction kits, oligos, and probes 
  • High-throughput sample preparation using Biomek automation and Echo acoustic liquid handling 
  • How solutions from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences and IDT together provide end-to-end workflows
