The ICGEB is launching an on-line, open access COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 Resouce Platform at to provide Resources, Tools and Know-how to fight the SARS-CoV-2 Virus that causes COVID-19, free of charge, to its Member States.

The ICGEB COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 Resource Page provides information on procedures and essential reagents that can be developed ‘in house’, without bought in kits. Information is provided for isolating and working with the virus and for sequencing for subsequent surveillance purposes, based on their expertise, and backed up by direct technical assistance with on-line video tutorials on the isolation and detection of Sars-CoV-2 RNA.

The ICGEB platform offers Tools with links to Resources and Procedures, including Protocols for Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in the preparation, isolation and detection of Sars-CoV-2 RNA by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Reagents for positive control (according to diagnostic procedures recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and a Sequencing Service for local isolates of the virus, through our partner lab in the AREA Science Park. The ICGEB is offering Technical Assistance in the form of on-line Video Tutorials in the preparation, isolation and detection of Sars-CoV-2 RNA, as well as Remote, Technical Assistance during the reproduction of SOPs.

The Web page at:
provides direct links to Further Training Opportunities, the opportunity for direct interaction with their Research Experts and PIs, who are focusing efforts on the current global health emergency. Contact information, recent updates, and other links are also provided.
