Description: Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is a member of the genus Betacoronavirus and subgenus Merbecovirus. It is a species of coronavirus which infects humans, bats, and camels. It causes Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) in humans. Most people infected with MERS-CoV developed severe respiratory illness, including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. MERS-CoV RT-qPCR Kit is designed for the in vitro detection of MERS-CoV genomes. The kit is built to have the broadest possible detection profile whilst remaining specific to MERS-CoV. Thus, this kit has been designed for the specific (inclusivity) and exclusive (exclusivity) in vitro detection of this species. The primers and probe sequences have very high (>95%) homology with a broad range of MERS-CoV genomes based on a comprehensive bioinformatic analysis with all reference data within the NCBI database at the time of design. Due to the inherent instability of RNA viral genomes, it is not possible to guarantee the detection of all clinical isolates. If required, a complementary kit for the detection of an endogenous gene of the species from which samples are being extracted is available at NZYTech (see Human). The complementary usage of an Endogenous Detection reaction provides a solid confirmation that nucleic acids were properly extracted from the selected biological matrix. If you require further information or have a specific question about the detection profile of this kit, please send an e-mail to and our scientific team will answer your question. This kit is designed to be used by trained users in a suitable molecular biology laboratory environment.
