QIAGEN (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) today announced that it has obtained CE marking for its newly developed QIAstat-Dx Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Panel test to be sold as an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2.

As the first syndromic testing solution in the European Union for use in the coronavirus epidemic, the QIAstat-Dx test kit can differentiate the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus from 21 other serious respiratory infections in patients who may have similar symptoms in a single testing run of about one hour.

The QIAstat-Dx Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Panel is a multiplexed nucleic acid test that evaluates samples such as nasopharyngeal swabs obtained from individuals suspected of respiratory tract infections. The newly approved panel includes assays targeting two genes used to detect the pathogen behind the disease, Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

We are pleased to launch the QIAstat-Dx SARS-CoV-2 test kits in Europe for clinical laboratories. QIAGEN is partnering with customers and public health authorities worldwide to provide a wide range of testing workflows, and the QIAstat-Dx syndromic panel adds an important tool for clinicians, said Thierry Bernard, Interim CEO and Senior Vice President, Head of the Molecular Diagnostics Business at QIAGEN. Our QIAGEN teams have responded rapidly to the spread of the COVID-19 disease, implementing 24/7 production of test components, adding staff and investing in expanding production capacity. In addition to QIAstat-Dx, we are supplying RNA extraction kits under the QIAamp and EZ1 brands that have been recommended in current testing guidelines worldwide, as well as numerous components and instruments for use in fighting this public health crisis.
