RADI COVID-19 Detection Kit /100 tests. This detection kit should be procured with S0003895 RADI PREP Swab and stool DNA/RNA Kit/100T.

General description:
The RADI COVID-19 Detection Kit is an in vitro diagnostic medical device, based on real-time RT-PCR technology utilizing reverse-transcriptase (RT) reaction to convert RNA into complementary DNA (cDNA). It is intended for the presumptive qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the COVID-19 in upper and lower respiratory specimens. The RADI COVID-19 Detection Kit is a molecular in vitro diagnostic test that aids in the detection and diagnosis of COVID-19 and is based on widely used nucleic acid amplification technology. The assay is for use by a laboratory professional trained to use real-time PCR in a laboratory.
