Comprehensive Respiratory Virus Panel

Superior Success Rate with Low Amounts of Clinical Sample

COVID-19 WGS with Celemics Comprehensive Respiratory Virus Panel


SARS-CoV-2 Phylogenetic Tree

※ Variants of global importance highlighted in bold.

Detection panel for the accurate sequencing and identification of prominent whole viral genomes, including SARS-CoV-2 mutations and variants (ex. Omicron, Delta).

Viruses are continuously evolving in ways that make them increasingly infectious and difficult to cure. Thus, the discovery of specific disease-causing viral strains and research into their ability to spread within individuals in a given population have become a paramount public health issue.

The Celemics Comprehensive Respiratory Virus Panel (CRV Panel) was developed to detect and sequence respiratory disease-causing viruses in humans using the NCBI RefSeq database as its foundation.

It allows for the Whole Genome Sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 and all its relevant mutations and variants, and enables simultaneous testing of 9 different virus types and its 39 strains of clinically significant and prevalent respiratory viruses.
