Test to Capacity with Swift Biosciences

Swift Biosciences, a leader in Next-Generation Sequencing Manufacturing & Technology, is providing exclusive access to the BillionToOne RNA extraction-free qSanger™: COVID-19 Test Kit.

The test is designed to detect the virus that causes COVID-19 in respiratory specimens obtained from nasal swabs, nasopharyngeal swabs, or oropharyngeal swabs and enables high capacity testing of up to one million tests per day.

RNA extraction-free qSanger™: COVID-19 Test Kit for +/- results

The BillionToOne COVID-19 test uses different sets of instruments and chemicals from existing COVID-19 tests, enabling labs to unlock a new set of unused capacity. The BillionToOne test sequences the virus’ genome – making the test sensitive, specific, and accurate compared to other COVID-19 tests on the market.  Most notable, this test does not require RNA extraction which is costly, time-consuming, and will not be negatively affected by critical supply chain demands due to flu season.

Additionally, the test is easily adaptable for any clinical lab with Sanger Sequencers and requires minimal training. Each qSanger™: COVID-19 Test Kit contains 2,000 reactions made up of reverse transcriptase, polymerase, sequencing primers, and assay control.

Other test kit sizes also available. Please contact us for more information.
