Co-Dx™ Logix Smart® SARS-CoV-2 (genes RdRp/E) test kit
Boost speed and accuracy with real-time PCR testing
The Co-Dx Logix Smart® SARS-CoV-2 (genes RdRp/E) test kit is an in vitro diagnostic test that uses our patented Co-Primers™ technology for the qualitative detection of two genes (gene RdRp and gene E) from the RNA of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus that causes COVID-19).
How it works
The test operates using a single step real-time reverse transcriptase PCR process in lower respiratory tract fluids (e.g. bronchoalveolar lavage, sputum, tracheal aspirate), upper respiratory tract fluids (e.g. nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs), and saliva during the acute phase of detection.

Test kit components
The Co-Dx Logix Smart SARS-CoV-2 (genes RdRp/E) test kit includes the following components.
Ready-to-use Master Mix
Includes the complete mix for convenience and an Internal Positive Control - Human RNaseP gene marker
Synthetic control intended to amplify all targets included in the kit to ensure integrity of the entire run
Acts as a negative control to verify Master Mix is free from contamination
The Co-Dx Logix Smart SARS-CoV-2 (genes RdRp/E) test kit is a real-time PCR multiplex test intended for the in vitro qualitative detection of nucleic acid from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), targeting the genes RdRp in the polygene Orf1ab region and gene E of the virus genome, in lower respiratory tract samples (e.g. bronchoalveolar lavage, sputum, tracheal aspirate), upper respiratory tract samples (e.g. nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs), and saliva from individuals suspected of COVID-19.
The Co-Dx Logix Smart SARS-CoV-2 (genes RdRp/E) test kit is intended for use by trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in the techniques of real-time PCR and in vitro diagnostic procedures.
