FDA grants emergency use authorisation for GenePro SARS-CoV-2 Test as diagnostic for COVID-19.- Gencurix

Gencurix has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization for its GenePro SARS-CoV-2 Test. It is the second RT-PCR test that Gencurix has launched following the first test assay, GenePro COVID-19 Detection Test released last March. Key advantages of GenePro SARS-CoV-2 test include simultaneous monitoring of up to 384 samples which would allow high throughput screening of the novel coronavirus. With the FDA’s EUA, Gencurix is now able to provide its COVID-19 detection tests the U.S. nationwide.

Gencurix’s GenePro SARS-CoV-2 Test has the flexibility in the number of samples it can test simultaneously depending on the different PCR platforms. When most of RT-PCR tests have been developed to be used with 96-well plates, GenePro SARS-CoV-2 test can be used with 384-well plate which can quadruple the number of test samples.
