Detect COVID-19 Variants with Swift Biosciences’ SARS CoV-2 Panel
Full Genomic Coverage Obtains Genomes from All Variants
Obtain genomes from viral titers as low as 10-100 viral copies
10 to 1 million viral genome copies are sufficient to generate NGS libraries using the SNAP panels. Following detection of SARS-CoV-2 by qPCR, the remaining cDNA is used as input for the SNAP Panels.
Two SNAP Panels are available to sequence SARS-CoV-2
Obtain full coverage of SARS-CoV-2 genome
The SNAP SARS-CoV-2 Kit uses overlapping primers to generate 345 amplicons, sized 116-255 bp (average 150 bp), along the length of the 29.9 kb viral genome and obtain 99.7% coverage of the genome. Overlapping primers ensure that novel variants are detected, even when the mutation is a dropout of genomic sequence. Comprehensive mutation detection is crucial for tracking nucleotide variants and improve understanding of virus evolution, transmission, and pathogenesis.
Obtain full coverage of S Gene within SARS-CoV-2 genome
The Swift Normalase Amplicon SARS-CoV-2 S Gene NGS Panel (SNAP) provides 100% coverage of the gene which encodes for the Spike Protein in the virus which causes COVID-19. Identify presence of emerging viral strains which contain mutations in the S Gene and model potential changes in transmission patterns based upon those mutations.
If variants are there, they will been seen.
