Virus Capture Kits

Get more from your samples and get it faster.  Knowing a virus is present in a sample and not being able to detect it is frustrating. Use Nanotrap® Magnetic Virus Particles to concentrate viruses rapidly from complex biological matrices in order to have high quality input material for your downstream analytical methods.


  • Nanotrap® Magnetic Virus Particles demonstrated to capture and concentrate a wide range of viruses, including: influenza A (1), influenza B (1), respiratory syncytial virus (1), coronavirus 229E (1), coronavirus OC43 (2), SARS-CoV-2 (3)(4), Zika (10), chikungunya (10), pepper mild mottle virus (12), hepatitis A virus (16), and monkeypox (17).

  • Methods developed for clinical swab samples, saliva, wastewater, and blackwater. (3)(4)(7)(8)(13)(15)

  • Eliminate false negatives. Nanotrap® particles enabled the identification of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in 9 out of 32 diagnostic remnant samples that had previously tested negative for the virus. (4)

  • Increase assay sensitivity by capturing and concentrating low abundance viruses. Nanotrap® particles improved real-time RT-PCR signal in low viral load diagnostic remnant samples by an average of 3.1 Ct values and sequencing coverage in low viral load diagnostic remnant samples by 20-80%. (4)(14)

  • Successfully utilized in high-complexity and point-of-care RT-PCR assays with FDA Emergency Use Authorization for COVID-19. (9)(11)(13)

  • Nanotrap® particles utilize affinity capture and enrichment to attract and bind low abundance viruses. Nanotrap® particles do not utilize antibodies or other biomolecules as affinity molecules.

  • Enables an automated method for concentrating and processing virus from 24 raw wastewater samples in 40 minutes, reducing processing time by at least 20-fold, as compared to other methods. (8)

  • For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Incorporating the Nanotrap® technology into your workflow is simple. ​Reduce your sample real-time RT-PCR sample processing time by 2-3 fold by eliminating a commercial extraction kit altogether.
