Developed by the Near East University, the TRNC's indigenous PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit was awarded the "Special Mention Award for the Year 2021" by the European Biotechnology Association.

The local PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, R&D and designed by Turkish scientists at the Near East University and made available in the TRNC in July with the approval of the Ministry of Health, is organized by the European Biotechnology Thematic Network Association (EBTNA). Received the 2021 Special Mention Award given at the European Biotechnology Congress.

Prof. from Near East University. Dr. Tamer Sanlidag, Assoc. Dr. Mahmut Çerkez Ergören, and Dr. The award given to the TRNC's native PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, which was developed with the work carried out by Gülten Tuncel, was presented to Near East University Deputy Rector Prof. Dr.Tamer Şanlıdağ President of the European Biotechnology Association Prof. Dr. He took it from Munis Dündar.

TRNC's native PCR kit simultaneously detects four main variants of COVID-19

The PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, developed to detect the COVID-2 disease caused by SARS-CoV-19, detects the presence of the virus in less than an hour, while detecting the same zamIt is also capable of typing Alpha (England), Beta (South Africa), Gamma (Brazil) and Delta (India) variants, which are currently classified as variants of concern by the World Health Organization. The kit, developed at the Near East University, is the first kit in the world to simultaneously scan and detect these four main variants.

Near East University's new PCR kit will detect flu and COVID-19 from the same sample

Near East University scientists continue to develop the PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, which received the 2021 Special Mention Award given by the European Biotechnology Association. Near East University also designed a hybrid PCR Diagnostic Kit, which detects viruses that cause influenza and COVID-19 from the same sample, by developing the domestic PCR Kit, the design and R&D of which belongs entirely to itself. Thanks to the kit designed in line with the recommendations of the US Center for Disease Prevention and Control, hybrid kits that can detect SARS-CoV-2 and influenza A and B viruses, the TRNC is synonymous with the whole world. zaminstant transition will be provided.

prof. Dr. Tamer Şanlıdağ: “I am receiving this meaningful award not only on behalf of the Near East University but also on behalf of the entire TRNC.”
Emphasizing that the PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, which was designed at the Near East University and started to be used with the approval of the TRNC Ministry of Health, meets a very important need of the TRNC during the pandemic process, Near East University Deputy Rector Prof. Dr. Tamer Şanlıdağ said, “It is a great honor for us that our PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, developed and produced by the Near East University with the vision of university 4.0, has been awarded by the European Biotechnology Association. I am receiving this meaningful award not only on behalf of the Near East University, but also on behalf of the entire TRNC.” prof. Dr. Şanlıdağ said, “Our valuable teachers and all their efforts from the development of our PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit to its production. zamOur Chairman of the Board of Trustees, whose support we feel with us at the moment, Prof. Dr. I would like to express my gratitude to İrfan Suat Günsel”.
