How PentaBase can help in the fight against coronavirus

The COVID-19 coronavirus disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread worldwide and is an acute threat to global health. Using our technologies and knowledge, PentaBase is currently working on several initiatives to support healthcare workers, scientists and patients combating the COVID-19 disease:

SARS-CoV-2 oligonucleotides

PentaBase is a manufacturer of oligonucleotides based on standard and proprietary DNA technologies. We are currently supplying our customers with custom oligonucleotides for SARS-CoV-2 PCR assays based on our proprietary INA® technologies.

SARS-CoV-2 assay

PentaBase is currently developing our own SARS-CoV-2 real-time PCR assay for use on standard real-time PCR equipment expected to be released in the last week of March. Our SARS-CoV-2 assay shows improved sensitivity and specificity compared to assays based on standard DNA thereby reducing the risk of false positive results.

Instruments for SARS-CoV-2 detection

PentaBase is supplying instruments and kits for detection of SARS-CoV-2 including our BasePurifier™ Nucleic Acid Extraction Instrument and our BaseCycler™ Real-time PCR Instrument.

PentaBase is currently receiving a lot of inquiries from organizations, companies and private persons regarding COVID-19 testing. Please fill out the forms below and we will process this information in collaboration with relevant authorities.
