A Single Multiplex qPCR Kit to Screen & Identify 3 different SARS-CoV-2 Variants

ABL is pleased to share with you that the UltraGene qPCR SARS-CoV-2 Multi Variants Deletions Assay (RUO), a direct qPCR assay to be used on already SARS-CoV-2 positive samples (no need to do additional RNA isolation), is now available.
The kit, targeting 5 different genomic variations on 3 genes in a multiplex format (single well) can be used to screen and identify 3 lineages (possibly associated with an increased infectivity and transmissibility):
  • UK VARIANT VOC202012/01, lineage B.1.1.7, clade 20I/501Y.V1 & UK / E484K cluster VARIANT – VOC 202102/02 (B.1.1.7 cluster with E484K mutation)
  • SOUTH AFRICA VARIANT –  Variant 501Y.V2, lineage B.1.351, clade 20H/501Y.V2
  • BRAZIL VARIANT – Lineage P.1 (B., clade 20J/501Y.V3
