Qiagen’s High Throughput COVID-19 Test Earns CE Mark
Qiagen has been granted CE mark certification for its Artus SARS-CoV-2 Prep&Amp test, a polymerase chain-reaction test.
The test uses a liquid-based sample preparation process that takes approximately two minutes. All the required reagents are supplied with the kit that uses Universal Transport Media, a room temperature stable viral transport medium. The test can support up to 672 samples per cycler in an eight-hour shift, the company said.
Qiagen has also applied to the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization.
