The Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit performs rapid and reliable isolation of viral RNA from nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens that are dry or in viral transport media (VTM). The extraction methodology is easily adaptable to various automated systems and can be scaled depending on the starting amount of sample used.

This Kit utilizes cutting-edge Mag-Bind® technology that enables the purification of high-quality nucleic acids free of proteins, nucleases, and other impurities. Purified nucleic acids are ready for direct use in a variety of downstream applications, including qPCR, RT-qPCR, and more.

SARS-CoV-2 Detection

Figure 1. 1×105 copies of synthetic SARS-CoV-2 were spiked into a 200 μL sample containing 2000 HEK293 cells. Viral nucleic acids were extracted following the recommended protocol from Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit (M6219). 4 and 8 μL of template was used in a 20 μL SYBR Greenlabeled RT-qPCR reaction. The average Ct values obtained are shown on the left. The Ct difference between the two template 30.89 amounts is ~1 indicating no qPCR inhibition.

Influenza B Detection

Figure 2. 50 µL of Influenza B virus control was spiked into a 200 μL sample containing 2000 HEK293 cells. Viral nucleic acids were extracted following the recommended protocols from Mag- Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit (M6219) and Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit (M6246). 4 and 8 μL of template was used in a 20 μL SYBR Green-labeled RT-qPCR reaction. The average Ct values obtained are shown left. The Ct difference between the two template amounts used is ~1 indicating no qPCR inhibition. The Ct values for the Mag-Bind® Viral RNA Xpress Kit (M6219) were on an average ~0.5 Ct lower than Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit (M6246) indicating improved performance.
