covid 19

Coronavirus disease 2019, popularly known as COVID-19, is an ongoing pandemic and the most serious global health crisis that has ever been reported. COVID-19 is a potential Zoonotic infection caused by a newly discovered, genetically mutated strain of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) named Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). This pandemic has caused disruption of global health, social and economic status resulted in a significant economic recession. Affecting human life worldwide and raising the death toll to millions, the coronavirus outbreak is declared the deadliest pandemic in world history. Scientists worldwide strive diligently to discover the best diagnostic test, covid vaccine, and therapeutic regimen to manage this outbreak. Explore advanced search options to procure covid 19 biospecimens for research by using Clinical Diagnosis, ICD-10-CM Codes, and Laboratory Parameters.

COVID-19 signs and symptoms:

Depending upon the severity of infection, symptoms of COVID-19 are highly variable, ranging from mild to severe life-threatening acute respiratory failure. However, most individuals experience mild to moderate symptoms (like mild pneumonia) that may or may not require hospitalization.
Being an infectious disease, common symptoms of the COVID-19 pandemic are fever, dry cough, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, rhinorrhea, sore throat, myalgia, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, skin rashes, and discolouration of fingers or toes. In severe infection, patients experience acute respiratory distress, chest pain, or pressure followed by loss of speech and movement requiring immediate medical attention.


Transmission of Covid-19:

Coronavirus disease is a highly contagious respiratory droplet infection. The 2019-nCoV virus may enter the host body through the respiratory tract and mucosal surfaces. The disease transmission is primarily through contact transmission or through droplets of saliva or nasal discharge coming out when an infected person speaks, breathes, coughs or sneezes. The geriatric population and people with comorbid disease conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more prone to develop serious illnesses.


Insight to the Covid 19 Biospecimens for research: 

Ensuring strict Adherence to the WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, Central BioHub brings a broad spectrum of COVID19 biospecimens for research.
We provide a plethora of COVID-19 samples for research, such as human serum, plasma, and swab test both oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal critically tested for SARS-CoV-2-IgG, SARS-CoV-2-IgM, and SARS-CoV-2-RNA. We offer you a curated collection of clinically confirmed positive and negative SARS CoV 2 samples maintained  in perfect conditions, devoid of cross-contamination, and stored at -800 Celsius collected from:

 

  • Clinically confirmed patients: Covid positive samples  with tested positive  molecular results for SARS-CoV-2 with complete clinical information such as patient demographics, clinical diagnosis, disease onset, clinical presentation, and exposure details are also available. It includes human plasma, serum, saliva, nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swab test available at small, medium, and large volumes intended for covid-19 research purposes.
  •  Symptomatic patients: These are SARS CoV 2 samples isolated from donors exhibiting signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and tested positive. It includes human plasma, serum, saliva, nasopharyngeal, and oropharyngeal Covid 19 swab test samples available at small, medium, and large volumes intended for COVID-19 research purposes.
  • Vaccinated donors: Human serum and plasma samples (available in small, medium, and large volume) collected from COVID-19 vaccinated donors. It includes human biosamples isolated from vaccinated individuals from different countries.
  • Screening population: Biospecimen including human serum and plasma samples (small, medium, and large volume), nasopharyngeal, and oropharyngeal swab test isolated from symptomatic and asymptomatic donors, with noted exposure for any COVID-19 risk factors.
  • Healthy donor samples: containing serum and plasma samples (small, medium, and large volume), nasopharyngeal, and oropharyngeal swab test of self-reported healthy asymptomatic donors tested for COVID-19.
  •  COVID-19 Serial sets: contains clinically confirmed positive and negative human serum, plasma, saliva samples, and Covid 19 swab test samples available in small, medium, and large volume with 7-8 total sampling from individual patients ideal for COVID-19 research.
  • Covid-19 remnant swab test samples: contains oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal remnant swabs accumulated from accredited laboratories for routine testing and available in matrices like UTM, VTM, Aptima Swab, E-Swab, Liquid Amies, and Saline.

 

We also provide COVID-19 panels containing a predefined set of positive and negative human biospecimens ideal for assay validation, COVID-19 research, and diagnostic research. Besides, COVID-19 matched samples containing serum and plasma samples isolated from single-donor are also available for purchase. Central BioHub delivers you Covid 19 samples for research that are ethically obtained, cautiously preserved,  and precisely handled to optimise diagnostic yield and enhance life science discovery. Our experts at Central BioHub assist you in every step of biospecimens procurement.
