ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test v2.0 (Pre-EUA)

Specific Detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA for COVID-19


The ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test v2.0 is a real-time RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider. Testing is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. §263a, to perform high complexity tests, or by similarly qualified non-U.S. laboratories.

The ViroKey SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test v2.0 is configured for use on the Sentosa SX 101 instrument, with the ViroKey SX Virus Total Nucleic Acid Kit, in conjunction with Sentosa SA201 or Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR system.

Positive results are indicative of active infection. Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

Pre-EUA: Distributed in accordance with Section IV.C.2 (FDA Notifications) of FDA’s Policy for Diagnostic Tests for Coronavirus Disease-2019 during the Public Health Emergency, dated May 11, 2020.
