Microbiologics launched the first IVD molecular control for SARS-CoV-2. in March 2020.
The SARS-CoV-2 synthetic RNA material is a 1044-nucleotide portion of the SARS-CoV-2 N (nucleocapsid) gene. It contains three markers N1, N2 and N3 that are commonly used in diagnostic assays.
The first IVD control provides the N1, N2, & N3 gene targets in an easy-to-use format. Identified by product number HE0060S
NEW 28 April 2020
The new Microbiologics SARS-CoV- 2 molecular control covering more targets, so applicable to more systems. Identified by product number HE0061S
HE0061S SARS-CoV-2 control is a synthetic RNA material pool containing the following genetic targets: • N gene (position 28237-29280) which contains three markers N1, N2 and N3 that are commonly used in diagnostic assays • E gene (position 26245-26472) • RdRp gene (positions 12641-12824, 13442- 16236) • S gene (position 21563-25384)
More Targets Covered Means more Systems Covered

About Helix Elite™ Molecular diagnostic tests offer rapid and specific information regarding the presence and quantity of a microorganism (e.g., bacterium, parasite, virus, etc).
Development and proper interpretation of a molecular diagnostic test requires the use of a positive control. A positive control confirms the proper performance of a molecular assay and operator.
Synthetic Helix Elite™ Molecular Standards are nucleic acids created for use as positive control surrogates for various microorganisms and viruses where target genomic material may be difficult or unsafe to obtain.
