Roszdravnadzor has registered the test-system for Express-analysis of coronavirus infection developed by the group of companies “Medical-biological Union”. The right to medizdeliya belong to the company “Generium”.
By using the new system, the detection of coronavirus RNA is carried out using loop isothermally amplification. The use of a kit for screening will allow 3 times to improve the performance of laboratories and to increase the probability of detecting viral infections in patients due to the high sensitivity. Thanks to the simplified procedure of sample preparation and reduce the number of stages of analysis, the time to detect the pathogen is less than an hour.
“This development we see the mobilization of scientific and industrial resources for tasks of national importance. Implementation of the best standards of laboratory diagnosis, the synergy between departments and teams helps in pandemic conditions to implement projects and provides unprecedented speed of evolution of the technical characteristics of development of diagnosticums coronavirus – from the simple to the advanced,” – said the first Deputy Minister of industry and trade Sergey Tsyb.
