The Target Tube COVID19 N1 gene measures the presence of COVID19 in waste water. This makes it clear at an early stage whether the Corona virus is circulating in a community and regions can be compared. The qPCR analysis for COVID19 N1 gene is fast and accurately quantifies the presence of this gene. Can be used in combination with Target Tube COVID19 N2-gene (article number U20072). Target Tubes are packed per 50 pieces and are ready for use. The shelf life is at least 1 year at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
The importance of this qPCR measurement is that we can measure the quality of swimming water on the day itself instead of 3 days before.
