One test for the simultaneous detection of four respiratory virus targets (SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, RSV A/B)


Considering a possible upcoming flu epidemic in autumn and winter 2021, a reliable detection of different respiratory pathogens is of great importance for research. Lower respiratory tract infections, in particular, are caused by a variety of viruses, including influenza virus A (Flu A) and B (Flu B), human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and SARS-CoV-2.

QIAGEN® has developed a multitarget detection assay that can be used to detect and reliably distinguish the four respiratory virus targets. The assay specifically and sensitively detects and clearly differentiates simultaneously SARS-CoV-2, RSV and the two most common influenza strains (Flu A and Flu B) in one qPCR reaction within a very short time. See further information here and in the QIAGEN Quick-Start Protocol.

The following multitarget detection assay is available:        Product Pack size              Price
      SQ20001: Multitarget detection assay for respiratory viruses 100rxn 215,00 Euro
      SQ20002: Multitarget detection assay for respiratory viruses 1000rxn 2000,00 Euro


This assay allows the simultaneous detection of the following targets and is delivered in five individual vials:​ 

      Target Channel                                                      
      SARS-CoV-2 N1/N2 Assay Rox
      Flu B Assay Fam
      Flu A Assay Hex
      RSV A/B Assay Cyanine 5
      IPC (In-process control) Assay Cyanine 5.5

The assay consists of a set of five vials, each vial containing the appropriate lyophilised qPCR assay for one virus target. Each assay is dissolved according to the accompanying data-sheet and will be sufficient for
100 rxn or 1000 rxn when used with the QIAprep&amp Viral RNA UM Kit™.
