Hifair® V nCov Multiplex One-Step RT-qPCR enzyme mix
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage throughout the world, the demand for testing kits steadily increases. The availability of the testing kits, however, is often limited, which greatly impacts the effective control of the pandemic. Empowered by our innovative enzyme modification technology, large-scale protein fermentation/purification technology, and highly-efficient antibody screening technology, Yeasen has been playing an important role in the battle against coronavirus by providing enzymes for the production of millions of testing kits in China.
Yeasen’s Hifair® V nCov Multiplex One-Step RT-qPCR enzyme mix combines three major enzymes in one tube and allows sensitive quantification of RNA templates, including RNA viruses. Reverse transcription and PCR amplification are carried out in the same tube, simplifying hands-on operations and reducing cross-contamination risks. The enzyme mix is highly resistant to common PCR inhibitors with enzymes engineered to be thermostable and are compatible with the UDG enzyme-based anti-contamination system. We also provide single- enzyme products for major components within the enzyme mix, namely the Hifair® V Reverse Transcriptase, the UNICON® HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase, and the Murine RNase inhibitor. A ready-to-use reaction buffer is also available, which is optimized for the enzyme mix or the single-enzyme products.
Our UNICON® HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase is an antibody modified enzyme whose activity is blocked at room temperature and will only be restored after the antibodies are denatured and dissociate from the polymerase during the initial denaturation step of the PCR. This technology ensures high specificity and sensitivity of the PCR reactions, effectively reduces false positives and allows room-temperature reaction setup.
