SwiftX™ Swabs 

Product code: SXS-50, SXS-200

Rapid extraction of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from swabbed samples and liquid media.

 Key facts:

  • can be used with various swab types (flocked, polyester, cotton)
  • can also be used for RNA extraction from transport media as well as saliva
  • very simple workflow with ultra-low consumable requirements
  • RNA and DNA ready to amplify in less than 15min
  • over 200 extractions per hour possible (semi-automated workflow)
  • compatible with all common amplification technologies

SwiftX™ Swabs has been validated for extraction of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) RNA from nasopharyngal as well as oropharyngal swabs. Swabs can be transported dry or if required in transport media, such as saline or VTM.

RAA isothermal nucleic acid amplification

RAA (recombinase aided amplification) is an interesting and fast alternative to conventional PCR manufactured by Qitian Gene Biotechnology:

  • as sensitive as PCR - but finished in 15 minutes - no need for a PCR cycler 
  • real-time results in 5-10 minutes using fluorescence probes
  • Well-suited for Point-of-Care (POC) applications
  • freeze-dried reagent mix
