This new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus outbreak has affected more than 1,29 million people worldwide to date and has since been classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). The number of known cases continually increases day after day, now covering 183 countries.

At Diagenode Diagnostics, we are committed to protect our employees and their families based on WHO and Belgium guidelines, and to support our customers and all the scientific communities during the pandemic.

We are working hard to maintain operations and secure our supply chain, and we are also committed to providing consistent and timely support, with the only aim of satisfying all our customers around the world.

In the same time, Diagenode Diagnostics is offering a unique all-in-one solution for SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus testing, based on the geneLEAD VIII instrument which also allows laboratories to develop and run their own homebrew assays. We also provide high quality reagents (Primers & Probe Set, Master Mix and Control, see below) to support daily laboratory activities in this current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Molecular Diagnostics is key to provide the most appropriate patient care and support this coronavirus outbreak management.

Please feel to contact us for any question about our in vitro diagnostics solution, we remain your trusted molecular diagnostics partner especially during these challenging times


DMML-R4-A100 is designed for fast, highly sensitive real-time RT-PCR even in the presence of challenging PCR inhibitors. The 4X formulation provides enhanced detection of both RNA and DNA viruses and is ideal for multiplex gene expression studies, even with low target input. DMML-R4-A100 provides a single-tube format for uniform handling and processing, while delivering qPCR cycling in <30 minutes, helpful when working in high throughput workflows.

DMML-R4-A100 enables 1-step RT-PCR for presence/absence, standard curve, and relative quantification experiments.

Thermostable MMLV Reverse Transcriptase
ROX™dye (passive reference)
Recombinant Ribonuclease Inhibitor
Buffer components optimized for maximum sensitivity and tolerance to several RT-PCR inhibitors
Volume 625 µL
Reactions 100 (25 µL final)
Packaging 1.5 mL conical tube
Reference DMML-R4-A100

The RNA extraction & PCR inhibition control (EIC) contains an RNA virus exhibiting no sequence similarity to the human genome, viruses, or other pathogens affecting humans. The EIC added in each sample follows the full process to confirm the quality of the extraction and the absence of inhibition during the PCR.

This product enables the detection of a specific sequence of this RNA virus with the associated primers & probe set (labelled in Yellow Dye or Cy5).

This Control has been extensively validated for use with respiratory and stool samples.

Contents Primers & Probe labelled with Yellow Dye (YD) or Cy5 (CY)
Volume 250 µL
Reactions 100 (25 µL final)
Packaging 1.5 mL conical tube
Contents RNA Viral Culture (10.000 TCID50/mL)
Volume 1000 µL
Reactions 100 (25 µL final)
Packaging 1.5 mL conical tube
Reference DICR-YD-L100 / DICR-CY-L100
List Price 101.50 EUR (Yellow Dye) / 146.20 EUR (Cy5)


Facing the emergence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), high-volume respiratory testing is demanded in laboratories worldwide.

Diagenode Diagnostics launches today a new Primers & Probe Set to detect by Real-Time PCR the SARS Coronavirus (including SARS-CoV-2) based on the recent publication (Corman et al., 2020) and the routine experience from many laboratories in Europe.

This Primers & Probe Set amplifies a specific sequence of the E gene coding for the Envelope small membrane protein and so allowing the detection of SARS Coronavirus. This product represents the perfect tool for the first-line SARS-CoV-2 screening in a routine workflow.

This Primers & Probes Set is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the detection of SARS Coronavirus including SARS-CoV-2 in human nasopharyngeal swab samples from patients potentially infected by these pathogens.

Contents Primers & Probe (labelled with FAM) targeting E gene
Volume 330 µL
Reactions 100 (25 µL final)
Packaging 1.5 mL conical tube
Reference DPPR-88-L100
List Price 510.00 EUR

This Primers & Probe Set is for Research Use Only (RUO). This set can also be combined with the Master Mix 1-Step 4X and the RNA Extraction & PCR Inhibition Control (EIC).
