Twist Respiratory Virus Controls: Synthetic viral controls covering a broad range of human respiratory viruses

Research into human respiratory viruses has become a focal point with the advent of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Respiratory viruses such as influenza viruses, rhinoviruses and coronaviruses often overlap symptomatically. It is therefore critical to distinguish between infectious agents driving a pandemic, such as SARS-CoV-2, and other viruses. It is also important to understand the source of the viral infection, and the subtleties of key variants that cause infectious diseases. The Twist Respiratory Virus Controls enable investigation into the biology of a broad range of viruses by NGS and qPCR. Included in the panel is a range of variants with comprehensive coverage of full length synthetic virus sequences, enabling distinction between key infectious agents.
