Fast and accurate diagnosis and the immediate isolation of patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) are regarded as the most effective measures to restrain the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Here, we present a high-throughput, multi-index nucleic acid isothermal amplification analyzer (RTisochip™-W) employing a centrifugal microfluidic chip to detect 19 common respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, from 16 samples in a single run within 90 min. The limits of detection of all the viruses analyzed by the RTisochip™-W system were equal to or less than 50 copies·µL-1, which is comparable to those of conventional reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. We also demonstrate that the RTisochip™-W system possesses the advantages of good repeatability, strong robustness, and high specificity. Finally, we analyzed 201 cases of preclinical samples, 14 cases of COVID-19-positive samples, 25 cases of clinically diagnosed samples, and 614 cases of clinical samples from patients or suspected patients with respiratory tract infections using the RTisochip™-W system. The test results matched the referenced results well and reflected the epidemic characteristics of the respiratory infectious diseases. The coincidence rate of the RTisochip™-W with the referenced kits was 98.15% for the detection of SARS-CoV-2. Based on these extensive trials, we believe that the RTisochip™-W system provides a powerful platform for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
