NZYTech supports the Zoo!

During the pandemic, NZYTech is committed to support Zoos that are suffering due to lockdown restrictions. When buying the NZYTech kit for detection of SARS-CoV-2 in animals species we will transfer 10% of what you pay to the Zoo of your choice.


Following the recent launch of a new NZYTech product that allows Life Science Researcher’s to detect the SARS-CoV-2 in more than 50 animal species, NZYTech has now committed to give 10% of its sales from the Veterinary SARS-CoV-2 One-Step RT-qPCR Kit (RUO) kit the a Zoo of your choice. Simply insert your Zoo of preference in the Order Notes when placing an order during the checkout process.

This kit provides a complete set of reagents and probes for the highly specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 genome in animal samples, including an effective internal control to confirm the efficiency of sample RNA extraction and the absence of PCR inhibitors, among others.

Veterinary SARS-CoV-2 One-Step RT-qPCR Kit, RUO

For Research use only

One-step real-time RT-PCR is the fastest and most reliable method to perform an accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. NZYTech’s Veterinary SARS-CoV-2 One-Step RT-qPCR Kit (RUO) includes all reagents required to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in a variety of animal samples. Extracted and purified RNA from different biological material is reverse transcribed to cDNA and subsequently amplified in a single reaction using two highly specific primers/probe sets exploiting the so-called TaqMan® principle.

During this process, one probe specifically anneals to a region of SARS-CoV-2 N gene, when the sample was extracted from an infected animal, and an additional primers/probe set acts as an internal control to detect β-actin (ACTB gene) nucleic acids. The internal control detection validate the efficacy of the extraction process and the absence of PCR inhibitors potencially present in the animals biological samples. This internal control detection was validated for a variety of animal species.

The two probes are differently fluorescence labelled, with FAM and HEX reporter dyes, respectively, to allow the identification of the two target genes in a single reaction. In addition, they are provided in optimized concentrations to make sure amplification of animal mRNA, even when present at very high concentrations, does not limit the efficiency of the SARS-CoV-2 primers/probe set.
