The Diagnostic, PCR-based Test to Detect SARS-CoV2 RNA (COVID-19): Solving the Global Shortage of the Key Organic Building Block Using Flow Chemistry

Testing for SARS-CoV2, the virus that caused the condition known as COVID-19, is done using a RT (reverse transcriptase) PCR-based test to detect the target viral RNA. These probes are prepared by conventional solid phase synthesis on controlled pore glass using O-DMT-(2-N-FMOC-4’-aminobutyl)-1,3-propanediol (OFP) as the linker. Approximately 1 kilogram of OFP has been manufactured per […]
