The Xfree™ COVID-19 Direct RT-PCR test is offered lyophilized in a single vial, in the trusted BioGX Sample-Ready™ “Just Add Water” format where no other reagent is required. The test is available for the most ubiquitous real-time PCR platforms already available in thousands of laboratories. Direct addition of patient samples without any pre-processing or extraction not only overcomes the supply issues that have plagued RT-PCR testing, but also unleashes the testing capacity.
The fast and simple workflow is designed to help laboratories to increase their testing capacity without adding expert molecular staff or new automation.
