Detection of Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) with Mic

With the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus, Chinese authorities have taken action to prevent the further spread of the disease. An important part of that prevention is the early detection and continual surveillance of the pathogen. Our Chinese partner, Life River, are one of the first to have developed a CFDA qualified 2019-nCoV qPCR detection kit, designed for the Mic real-time PCR cycler.

Over 200,000 kits are being manufactured per day, to meet the demand of health authorities fighting the spread of the virus. As such, BMS is also prioritising all of its production to ensure sufficient stocks are available to meet the demand for instruments and consumables.

BMS are committed to working with its global partners in any efforts to improve health outcomes for both humans and animals. For more information about the 2019-nCoV kit and its use on the Mic please do not hesitate to contact us.
