COVID-19 Lateral Flow Immunoassays

Also known as Lateral flow test, Lateral flow assay, or Rapid tests, Lateral Flow Immunoassays are simple to use devices used to rapidly confirm the presence or absence of a target analyte, such as SARS-CoV-2 antigens (detecting presence of the virus itself) or anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies (IgG/IgM). We offer the following COVID-19 lateral flow immunoassays from our suppliers:

RT-qPCR Coronavirus Detection Kits

Quantitative reverse transcription PCR involves transcribing coronavirus RNA into DNA. Amplification of the resulting DNA via qPCR can be analysed in real-time, allowing for highly sensetive quantification of COVID-19 RNA (and therefore, quantification of viral load) in a highly sensitive method. RT-qPCR usually comes as a 1-step (RT and qPCR in 1 tube) or 2 step (RT and qPCR as separate reactions).


The MEBRIGHT SARS-CoV-2 Kit is an in vitro diagnostic medical device intended to be used by healthcare professionals for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA from upper respiratory tract specimen (nasopharyngeal swab) or lower respiratory tract specimen (sputum or alveolar lavage fluid) by reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) method. Detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of COVID-19.

Covid-19 Class II Peptides

In silico studies have shown which peptide sequences show high potential to be strong binders with Class I or Class II MHC molecules. MBL International went through this extensive list and identified peptide sequences that can be used with their QuickSwitch kits. kits. To date, they have tested 6 peptides with 3 Class II alleles. MBL International have already screened these peptides and know their binding affinity with the alleles they tested. Researchers can easily purchase the peptide and QuickSwitch allele kit to start making your own custom Tetramer in a quick, efficient manner.
