A 70-minute large-scale SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing workflow using the EchoLUTION Viral RNA/DNA Swab Kit
Reliable testing of large sample numbers in the shortest possible time while maintaining high sensitivity is essential for pandemic control and a way back to a normal social life. Our EchoLUTION Viral RNA/DNA Swab Kit in combination with the Anchor SARS-CoV-2 PCR Kit v 2.0 allows completion of 96 SARS-CoV-2 PCR-based analyses within 70 minutes. Both products are CE-IVD marked independently as well as in combination, allowing easy and fast integration into diagnostic routines. SARS-CoV-2 RNA extraction is simplified by the EchoLUTION single-step principle, making it much faster than conventional extraction methods. In addition, the Anchor PCR assay has been optimized for a fast workflow and high sample throughput, perfectly complementing our BioEcho extraction kit.
Workflow for SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing within 70 minutes
Features of the EchoLUTION Viral RNA/DNA Swab Kit and the Anchor SARS-CoV-2 PCR Kit v 2.0 enable large-scale stationary as well as mobile testing
Convenience and speed
Single-step purification and optimized reaction chemistry facilitates SARS-CoV-2 PCR within only ~70 minutes for large sample numbers.
In vitro diagnostics
CE-IVD labeling enables fast and easy integration into diagnostic laboratory routines and ensures high-quality standards.
The system is compatible with all types of swabs including dry swabs, swabs in transport medium or swabs in inactivation medium like the BioEcho EchoSAFE Viral Transport Medium.
In mobile testing environments, the presented workflow is combined with inactivating swab media and thus provides maximal process safety.
Purified inhibitor-free viral SARS-CoV-2 RNA allows reliable RT-PCR for the detection of specific S- and N-gene sequences from all major virus mutants.
Only standard laboratory equipment is needed and thus enables integration into stationary as well as mobile test stations.
70% less plastic consumption due to reduction of extraction steps as well as the use of alternative packaging materials.

What our partner says:
„At Anchor Diagnostics, we develop diagnostic solutions for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. We observe a general trend towards faster test procedures for molecular diagnostics. But not only fast detection methods are required, also the NA isolation processes need to become simple and quick. In this context, we have tested BioEcho Life Sciences’ single-step sample preparation kits. We found the BioEcho technologies to be robust and reliable and we believe they have the potential to help providing improved molecular diagnostics products and to significantly accelerate patient-side testing procedures.“
