Eliminates the need for RNA (or DNA) extraction, allowing for rapid, direct, cost-effective analysis of samples

Does Not Inhibit PCR-Based Testing

Image of a graph with the title, Detection of SARS-Cov-2 from Swabs Collected into DirectDetect or Saline. DirectDetect is able to detect Human RNase P and SARS-CoV-2 at significantly high levels compared to Saline, which detects none.

Compared to other reagents used for collecting swab samples, such as saline, DNA/RNA Shield — DirectDetect does not inhibit downstream real-time PCR.

Swabs were collected into either DNA/RNA Shield — DirectDetect or 0.9% saline, and then spiked with heat inactivated SARS-CoV-2 at a concentration of 5,000 copy/mL. 10µl of each sample was used as input into the Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit (R3013) for real-time PCR analysis.
