GA-map® COVID-19 Fecal Test Kit

Product family:
Product Code:
Covid-19 / SARS-CoV-2


Product Information:

The CE-marked GA-map® COVID-19 Fecal Test is designed to qualitatively detect SARS-CoV-2 in faecal samples. Viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) is isolated from human faecal samples followed by selective amplification of the target gene using specific primers for two sequences within the SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid gene (N1 and N2). RNA detection probes labeled with a fluorescent dye act as a reporter. Each probe

also has a second dye which acts as a quencher. When not bound to the target sequence, the fluorescent signals of the intact probes are suppressed by the quencher dye. The real-time data is recorded in a real-time (RT)-PCR instrument and

the results are reported as either positive or negative based on cycle threshold (Ct) recordings.

Applicable to:

  • patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (confirmation and management)

  • patients in the recovery phase (surveillance and clearance)

  • asymptomatic individuals concerned about possessing and transmitting the virus (prevention)

  • Screening faecal microbiota transplant (FMT) donors
