The Omicron variant does not show any mutations in the areas detected by our assays and is therefore positively detected by RIDA®GENE SARS-CoV-2 (Art. No. PG6815/ PG6820) and RIDA®GENE Flu & SARS-CoV-2 (Art. No. PG6825).
The SARS-CoV-2 Lineage I Assay (Art. No. PG6830RUO) also detects the Omicron variant (B1.1.529). However, there is no differentiation here from the variants B.1.351 (Beta) and P.1 (Gamma).
