Shimadzu is under development of kit to cut time on coronavirus inspection

March 4, 2020

Shimadzu announced on March 4, 2020 that it has started development of coronavirus gene detection reagent kit. In the conventional coronavirus test, a mucus of the throat is collected, and a PCR method for culturing and detecting a virus-specific genetic material contained therein is examined. The kit developed by the company eliminates the process of extracting genetic material, which significantly reduces inspection time. Shimadzu promptly tries to establish a supply system which can offers tens of thousands of inspections per month.
