Advanced enzymes to facilitate SARS-CoV-2 research

  • Date: June 15, 2021Time: 10:30am India, 1:00pm SGT (GMT +8), 3:00pm Australia (AEST)

Trends and key considerations for accurate and efficient analysis
As you work to understand the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, look for new screening ways or study virus-host interaction, you need research tools that you can trust. In this webinar we will tell about the latest advancements in thermostable DNA polymerases enabling sensitive and fast amplification even from samples with suboptimal purity. Then we will illustrate how our reverse transcription enzymes with increased levels of efficiency, sensitivity and inhibitor tolerance have been used in SARS-CoV-2 research, including in RT-LAMP, RT-qPCR, deep sequencing and cloning applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Be familiar with SARS-Cov-2 research trends and focused areas
  • Take an overview of major technologies used for SARS-Cov-2 research
  • Understand important features and key considerations of DNA polymerase and reverse transcriptase used for SARS-CoV-2 research
