The real-time RT-PCR test kit is a qualitative in-vitro nucleic acid amplification assay to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus quickly and with high accuracy. 

The kits, which meets the provisions of the EC Council Directives and Standards (IVDD 98/79/EC) have been validated and adopted for use by hospitals in various territories globally 

Laboratory-based PCR tests look for the RNA of the virus, and can detect as little as one virus particle in swabs taken. 

RT-PCR explained:

  • Lead scientist has been researching on infectious diseases tests for over 20 years coupled with experience in previous outbreaks.

  • Target viral RNA is extracted from the sample and converted into cDNA via Reverse transcription.

  • PCR amplification of target genetic material and Internal Control DNA to increase the amount of sample.

  • Simultaneously, the PCR amplicons are detected by fluorescent dye labelled probes. The viral portions glow and create a light pattern showing the presence of the virus.



The tests take approximately 90-120 minutes from extracted RNA to obtaining results.



The real-time RT-PCR kits supplied by INEX have superior limits of detection with an accuracy of up to 90 per cent. It is also highly specific as there is no cross-reactivity with other major human-related pathogens.
