VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex I Wastewater

The VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex I and Mplex II Wastewater kits detect the N1/ N2-gene targets (Mplex I) and the RdRp gene target (Mplex II) to specifically identify SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater as well as specific water quality indicators.

These two latest additions fit well into the overall VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Solution including an automated RNA isolation offering.


Wastewater testing has been implemented as an efficient tool to monitor the dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 infections in communities as part of the ongoing efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two multiplex assays hava been developed, which enable the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater samples through the specific detection of the N1/N2 gene (VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex I Wastewater) and the RdRp gene (VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex I Wastewater).

These two kits are the latest additions to the VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Solution, which also includes an automated RNA isolation.
