"Automated RT-PCR Setup for COVID-19 Testing"

The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has placed unprecedented demands on laboratories testing for COVID-19, leaving scientific staff to contend with a spiraling influx of patient samples and a rapid, continuous growth in workload.

Laboratories need additional automated liquid handling instruments for viral nucleic acid extraction and RT-PCR setup – which are the most labor-intensive processes in the diagnostic testing workflow – to increase the sample throughput capacity, reduce manual intervention by laboratory analysts, and fast track the development of COVID-19 assays.

This application note describes how the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot, together with a VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, Low Retention GripTips, and SureFlo 10 ml Reagent Reservoirs, were successfully used for RT-PCR setup in COVID-19 testing laboratories.
