Single qPCR Assay for the determination of all four SARS-CoV-2 Variants of Concern, Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta
What are Variants of Concern ?
Strains with a significant impact on transmissibility, severity and/or immunity that are likely to aggravate the epidemiological situation are considered as Variants of Concern (VoC).
Currently, four variants are considered as VoC: Gamma (P1; “Brazilian”), BETA (B.1351; “South African”), ALPHA (P.1.1.17; “UK”) and the DELTA P.1.617.2 (“Indian”). All VoC have specific mutations for which we have designed highly specific qPCR assays for a clear distinction of all VoC.
