• Anti-SARS-Cov-2 Mpro ELISA Test: the first serological assay designed to detect with high specificity and sensitivity recent and past SARS-CoV-2 infection.

  • This new type of serological test can detect antibodies from the onset of symptoms, allowing to confirm patients with recent and past infection.

  • We are working every day to open opportunities for a better understanding of the immune response and its evolution over time.

    FAQS

    Why Mpro protein is more inmunogenic than other proteins?

    Vital Role In Viral Replication

    In an attempt to increase the diagnostic possibilities of COVID-19 patients, this assay was developed for the detection of specific antibodies against one of the 16 non-structural proteins, the main viral protease (Mpro or 3CLpro), which plays a critical role in viral replication.

    The Mpro protease plays a vital role in processing the polyproteins that are translated from the viral RNA. Although this protein is not exposed in the viral particle, Mpro is elicited after viral infection. Like other b-coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 is a positive-sense RNA virus that expresses multiple proteins as a single polypeptide chain, and Mpro cleaves the polyprotein to release mature proteins for the virus. Inhibitors that can block viral replication are promising potential drug candidates that could be used to treat patients suffering from the COVID-19 coronavirus infection.

    How do I perform the test?

    Protocol: 

    1. Add sample Incubation Add 100 µl of the positive control, the negative control, the calibrator and the prepared sample (100:1 dilution) into the individual wells of the microplate. It is recommended to use two wells per sample, including the controls and in particular the calibrator. Incubate for 60 minutes at +37°C. When the process is manual, cover the microplate with one of the protective foils provided.
    2. Washing If necessary, remove the protective film. Empty the wells and then wash 4 times using 300 µl of 1X wash buffer in each wash. Leave the wash buffer in each well for 30 to 60 seconds per wash cycle. After washing, completely remove all liquid from the microplate by tapping it on absorbent paper with the openings facing downwards to remove all residual wash buffer.
    3. Incubation of the conjugate Add 100 µl of the dilution (1:100) of the HRP-conjugated antibody to the wells and incubate for 30 minutes at +37°C. When the process is manual, cover the microplate with one of the protective films provided.
    4. Washing If necessary, remove the protective film. Empty the wells and wash as described above (step 2).
    5. Substrate incubation Add 100 µl of the chromogenic substrate solution (TMB) to each well of the microplate. Incubate for 10 minutes at room temperature (+18°C and +24°C) and protected from light.
    6. Stopping Add 100 µl of the stop solution (1X – ready to use) to each well, trying to follow the same order in which the substrate solution was added.
    7. Absorbance measurement Measure the optical densities (OD) of each well in a microplate spectrophotometer at 450 nm and a reference wavelength of between 620 and 650 nm within 30 minutes of adding the stopping solution.
    8. Before measurement, carefully shake the plate to ensure an even distribution of the solution.
