SARS-CoV-2 Detection Kits

The goal of Hai Kang Life Corporation Limited (HKLife) is to offer complementary tests that might provide a total solution for SARS-CoV-2 detection by filling the current diagnostic gap posed by asymptomatic infections and allowing test-guided patient management.


The C/Tech SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR and C/Tech SARS-CoV-2 ERT-PCR detection kits were designed for use in research laboratories. These kits can also be deployed at clinics or hospitals, centralized laboratories or contracted testing providers. They are based on the Enhanced Real-time PCR (ERT-PCR) technology and Real-time PCR (RT-PCR) technology developed by HKLife, targeting the ORF1ab and the Nucleocapsid (N) genes in the virus genome and utilizing fluorescence probes for detection.

The performance of the C/Tech SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Technology kit was compared to four FDA EUA-approved COVID-19 test kits using contrived samples. The contrived samples were synthetic viral genomic sequences obtained from Twist Bioscience (San Francisco, CA) spiked into nucleic acid extracted from negative OP swabs. The tested concentrations were 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 and 320 copies/reaction. The C/Tech SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Technology performed as well as one of the comparator kits and out-performed three others.

Kit Limit of detection (copies/reaction)

Comparator 1 40
Comparator 2 80
Comparator 3 160
Comparator 4 320
