As reported in our Application Notes #92007004, genomic or synthetic RNA from four VoCs was used to test the compatibility of GenoScreenTM SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR Assay towards SARS-CoV-2 variant detection. 1x104 copies RNA input was used and 6 replicates were performed in each experiment. The RT-qPCR assay was able to detect all 4 types of variants (including the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta variants). 100% detection status was attained among the 6 replicates.
To further evaluate the detection efficiency against the Omicron variant, serial dilution of 1x105 copies down to 10 copies Omicron variant RNA input were tested. The RT-qPCR assay was able to detect all of the tested dilutions, therefore the detection sensitivity of the GenoScreenTM SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR Assay is not impacted by the Omicron variant.
