DiaCarta Inc. has filed for EUA with the FDA and has received CE mark for its highly sensitive QuantiVirus™ SARS-CoV-2 Test Kit
Richmond, California, March 24, 2020.
DiaCarta Inc., a precision molecular diagnostic company, announced today that it has filed for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) with the US FDA for its QuantiVirus™ SARS-CoV-2 test and has validated the COVID-19 diagnostic test in its own CLIA certified lab in Richmond, CA to provide testing services for healthcare providers and patients. DiaCarta recently received Conformité Européenne (CE) Mark for its product.
The in vitro diagnostic test based on Real-Time PCR technology is developed for specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA extracted from nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs and sputum from patients suspected with coronavirus infection. Three genes of SARS-CoV-2 including N, Orf1ab and E genes are targeted in the real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) assay to ensure high degree of sensitivity and accuracy. The analytical sensitivity is 1-5 copy/uL of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA for patient sample with a 95% confidence. Clinical validation of the assay showed 96.7% sensitivity and a specificity of 100%, with no cross-reaction to different types of non-SARS-CoV-2 species.
“We are pleased that we can offer our QuantiVirusTM SARS-CoV-2 product to healthcare providers and as a CLIA validated test to our customers” said Dr. Ram Vairavan, Senior Vice President of DiaCarta Inc., “as it will help to fulfil an urgent need, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to shut down daily life across the globe”.
