The HELINI Coronavirus [2019-nCoV] Real-time PCR Kit is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification kit for the detection of novel 2019 Coronavirus specific RNA. The kit is shipped on gel ice. Upon arrival, all components should be stored in -20°C. They are stable until the expiration date stated on the label. Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided, as this might affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. Storage at 2 to 8°C should not exceed a period of 5 hours.
