Save the time spent designing your own and use our predesigned qPCR primer/probe sets. The following pathogens have been tested with our primer/probe sets on the cobas omni Utility Channel on the cobas® 6800 and 8800 Systems:
Primers and probes are HPLC purified and verified by ESI mass spectrometry, delivering batch-to-batch consistency to provide confidence in your data.
The primers and probes were tested using the Roche cobas omni Utility Channel Tool v3.0 and the cobas omni Utility Channel Reagent Kit, using the parameters shown in Tables 1 and 2.
