The EchoLUTION Viral RNA/DNA Swab Kit provides rapid and reliable large-scale testing for COVID-19 diagnosis in a shorter time than conventional technologies. The automated workflow is based on instant virus lysis without incubation, followed by a one-minute, single-step centrifugation for purification. This kit is the fastest available on the market for viral nucleic acid extraction:
- Extract viral RNA from 384 patient samples, including PCR setup, in less than 1.5 hours
- Obtain reliable, reproducible, sensitive, and traceable results without cross-contamination
The automated protocol is compatible with the Hamilton Microlab STAR M and Hamilton STARlet liquid handling systems for both dry swabs and swabs in UTM in 96- and 48-well plate formats.
“The automated RNA extraction workflow allowed us to process the large volumes of samples we received from hospitals and others much faster. The most important thing in fighting the Corona pandemic, especially at the beginning, was not to be able to send a positive result days later, but within 24 hours.”
