Introducing the ViralSEQ™ Vesivirus Detection Assay
Viral contamination in mammalian product manufacturing presents a serious risk to the manufacturing process, the manufacturing facility, and the integrity of the product. Vesivirus 2117 is an RNA virus that has emerged as a potential threat to mammalian cell culture production.

Applied Biosystems has developed the first commercially available integrated kit for isolation and detection of Vesivirus from mammalian cell culture samples.
  • Sample prep solution with high recovery of RNA virus
  • Detection of known Vesivirus strains
  • Rapid time-to-results in less than 5 hours
  • TaqMan® chemistry–based real-time PCR assay

Introducing AccuSEQ™ Software: Mycoplasma and Custom Support for Residual DNA
The AccuSEQ™ Real-Time PCR Detection Software is part of a system that performs analytical testing for impurities and contaminants during the biopharmaceutical manufacturing process. Designed to work with the 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR instrument, the software supports the SEQ family of analytical detection and quantitation assays.
  • Automated presence/absence calls for Mycoplasma detection
  • Enables accurate quantitation of residual DNA in biological samples
  • Single software platform for all current and future SEQ real-time PCR assays
  • Helps enable 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
