ARTIC Primers

ARTIC primer pools are used for whole genome sequencing of SARS-CoV-2

The ARTIC NGS Primer Pool was developed to enable the specific amplification of SARS-CoV-2 genomic sequences. A respective and validated RNA extraction method needs to be used prior to the NGSeq analysis. Many researchers and governments are using the ARTIC primers to identify new mutations in the virus.

This product enables a selective, enriching PCR-based amplification of the full SARS-CoV-2 genome using ARTIC primers, that consist of over 200 primer pairs, covering the entire SARS-CoV-2 viral genome (29.9kb). For research use only.
