AQ-TOP COVID-19 Detection Kit Plus

Intended Use

The AQ-TOP™ COVID-19 Rapid Detection Kit is a PNA mediated Real-Time Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP) based in-vitro diagnostic product intended for detection of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 RNA in the sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage, upper and lower respiratory tract.


It is a first of its kind and one of the only test that is FDA-EUA approved that uses both PNA and RT-LAMP!

  • PNA-focused tests allow for less prep work which increases speed and fewer chances of contamination.

  • PNA mimics DNA does not go the DNA polymerase, instead of reports signals by hybridization and selective binding.

  • It is Temperature and Chemically stable

  • It has been acknowledged in the academic field to be a strong potential of diagnostics with Rt-PCR and better test than the TaqMan probe.

RT- LAMP (Real-Time Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification)

  • Does not require thermal cycling, performed at a constant temperature between 60 and 65 °C.

  • Creates a 1 step nucleic process before running the reaction.
