智通财经APP获悉,赛默飞世尔(TMO.US)已证实其用于检测新冠病毒的TaqPath COVID-19系列组合试剂盒和TaqPath COVID-19 CE-IVD RT-PCR试剂盒不受新出现的B.1.1.529即Omicron变异体的影响,能够实现精准的检测结果。

Omicron 变异体仅在刺突蛋白中就有30多个突变。世界卫生组织(WHO)和欧洲疾控中心都报告称,利用PCR检测的S基因靶向失效作为该变异的检测替代技术,有助于检测并识别Omicron。


据悉,除了最初研发的TaqPath COVID-19检测试剂,赛默飞世尔还研发了TaqPath COVID-19 2.0检测试剂,采用了更先进的检测设计,以加强对新出现的突变体检测的精准度。

南非疫情应对与创新中心(CERI)负责人Tulio De Oliveira此前曾表示:“赛默飞世尔的检测试剂使我们能够通过鉴定表现出S基因缺失的样本,检测出可能含有新变异体的病例。”
