SARS-CoV-2 Molecular Diagnostics Development

The highly pathogenic nature and transmission dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 have necessitated the availability of rapid, robust detection methods to ensure that infected individuals are treated in a timely manner. For SARS-CoV-2 molecular diagnostics manufacturers moving from emergency use authorization (EUA) to 510(k) premarket submission to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), robust testing must be performed to demonstrate that the device is safe and effective as well as substantially equivalent to legally marketed devices. To support these validation studies, ATCC provides an extensive array of authenticated and clinically relevant materials for evaluating limit of detection, inclusivity, and cross-reactivity.

Molecular standards

The extraction, preparation, and verification of nucleic acids can often require extensive amounts of time, labor, and expense. ATCC has addressed this issue by developing convenient, easy-to-use, genomic and synthetic molecular standards for quantitative nucleic acid amplification applications. These highly validated process controls remove the burden of culture work, nucleic acid extraction, and quantitation.

Purified viruses

Accurate and sensitive detection methods are critical for controlling the spread of highly infectious pathogens. However, the development and validation of these assays are limited by the availability of precisely quantified controls. To address this issue, ATCC has developed quantitative genomic and synthetic molecular standards representing clinically relevant strains.
