Reaction Mix are basic components of this detection The reaction mixes in this kit contain speciﬁc primers and probes for N gene and ORF1ab of COVID-19, and RNase P gene as sample internal control (IC), as well as all components needed for eﬃcient RT-PCR reactions.
The positive control is the mix of single-stranded RNA of speciﬁc regions of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), required to be dispensed into 200 μL PCR tubes with 5μL per reaction according to the required number of reactions. Please avoid repeated frozen-thawed cycles to avoid the degradation of RNA templates.

- Reaction mixes contain RT-PCR primers, probes and reaction reagents (except enzymes). Primers and probes for Internal control (IC) gene have been included in the reaction Set up following ingredients in order:
Table, Detection of each assay (example with reactions for ORF1ab, N gene and IC gene).Add the components as the order below:
|Reagents||Individual test (μL)|
|Reaction Mix (ORF1ab/N gene/IC)||14.6|
|RT Enzyme Mix||0.4|
- Add the 14.6 μL Reaction Mix and 0.4 μL RT Enzyme Mix together. Calculate the volume (μL) needed: number of tests multiply Reaction Mix or RT Enzyme Mix amount; prepare 10% more.
- Aliquot 15 μL of ﬁnal Reaction Mix into each sample
- The total RT-PCR reaction volume is 20 μL:
- RNA sample: Add 5μL of RNA sample to the corresponding reaction well in Reaction Mix.
- Positive control: Add 5μL of positive control to the reaction well in Reaction Mix as positive control well.
- Negative control: Add 5μL of Nuclease-free water to the reaction well in Reaction Mix as negative control well.
- Seal the tube cap and shake with inching on the shaker several times, followed by short spin on the centrifuge.
- RT-PCR protocol as below:
ORF1ab: FAM-BHQ1; N Gene: VIC-BHQ1; IC (RNase P) tube: CY5- BHQ3.
- Result Interpretation
- Quality Check for the Test Results
The following requirements on value Ct of positive control well and negative control well on the reaction plate within the same reaction plate/batch:
|Quality control requirement|
|Positive Control reaction well||Ct≤37|
|Negative Control reaction well||Ct>37|
- The experiment is invalidated, and repeat is required if the positive control and/or negative control does not meet the criteria set above.
- The analysis of the Ct value of the ORF1ab, N, and IC wells in each swab or sputum specimen as follows:
|Ct>40 or Undet||Ct>40 or Undet||Ct≤40||Negative|
|Weak positive; Retest
|Ct>40 or Undet||Ct≤37||Ct≤40||Coronaviral infection|
Ct>37 or Undet
Ct>37 or Undet
Ct>40 or undet

Test results only serve as clinical reference and comprehensive judgments based on clinical symptoms and other laboratory tests method should be considered by clinicians.
- Negative results cannot completely rule out the existence of novel Improper sample collection, improper transportation, improper processing and insuﬃcient initiation VL(viral load) may inﬂuences the experimental results.
- Other unverified interferences or PCR inhibitors may cause false negative results.
Warnings and Precautions:
- Carefully read this instruction before starting the procedure.
- Components from diﬀerent batch number kit cannot be used interchangeably.
- Once each component within the kit is thawed, it is suggested to use them up within one operation based on examinaton demand, and the component remained should be restored at -20℃. Repeated freezing and thawing (more than three times) of reagents should be avoided.
- Viral RNA and RT-PCR premix are sensitive to temperature. Once Sample RNA and RT-PCR pre-mix are taken out of -20±5℃ freezer, prepare the MasterMix on ice or in the cooling block.
- Avoid microbial and nuclease (DNase/RNase) contamination of the specimen and the components of the kit.
- Always use DNase/RNase-free disposable aerosol-blocking pipette tips.

- Use separated and segregated working areas for (i) reaction set-up, (ii) specimen preparation and (iii) ampliﬁcation/detection activitie Workﬂow in the laboratory should proceed in unidirectional manner. Wear separate coats and gloves in each area.
- All biological samples and materials with the contact with the product should be treated as infectious biohazard, and related local regulations shall be followed for the Prevent the exposure to skin and mucosa.
- The detection test with this kit should be conducted by medical staﬀ and technician with professional technical training.
- Store positive and/or potencially positive material separated from all other components of the kit.
