Tools to Support Infectious Disease and COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing Protocols

With the constant emergence of novel Sars-CoV-2 variants, and the limited information about the long-term immunity provided by the vaccines, supporting the research and testing efforts remains critical to managing the pandemic in line with the CDC and WHO guidelines.

As the RNA preparation, cDNA synthesis, RT-PCR, and ELISA are pipetting intensive protocols, precise and accurate pipetting can easily be compromised. Also, the large number of SARS-CoV-2 samples needed to be processed further exacerbate the problem. Considering the importance of rapid and reliable test results needed, it's crucial that the pipette & aerosol barrier filter tips enable quick execution while protecting patient samples from cross-contamination.
The ergonomic design of Sartorius single-/multi-channel mechanical Tacta®️ and electronic pipette Picus®️ 2 in combination with the Safetyspace® Filter tips make your work less straining and keep you concentrated as their low weight and low pipetting forces don’t tire your hand or yourself. Easy-to-clean design and resistant materials of the pipettes makes regular decontamination simple in the Coronavirus testing. Open connectivity enables you to integrate Picus® 2 to be part of an existing system.

The global reach of coronavirus means that PCR-grade water for testing must be available at all times and at all locations. Sartorius's Arium ultrapure water systems guarantee an on-demand supply of nuclease-free water, when and where it’s needed. With an Arium system, there’s no need to worry about warehouse stocks of bottled water or logistical challenges the pandemic is placing on supply chains. Your Arium system will supply exactly the volume of PCR-grade water you need for all your PCR workflows.

Throughout the RNA, DNA, RT-PCR handling process, you need the highest-grade water (ultrapure, deionized) on-site, especially in newly established testing units. The Sartorius Arium® Mini series, in combination with the Arium Cellplus Ultrafilter, as well as the Arium® Pro VF or UF with integrated Ultrafilter, offers the flexible and space-saving solution for your coronavirus testing needs at the point-of-use. RNase/DNase and endotoxin-free water will be available with constant high quality.
