The New SARS-CoV-2 OMICRON variants BA.4 and BA.5

The New SARS-CoV-2 OMICRON variants BA.4 and BA.5

DIA.PRO constantly verifies the effect of new SARS-CoV-2 variants on our COVID-19 PCR test

(code: COV19RNALYO.CE)

Based on our analysis, the “COV19RNALYO.CE” kit (fully developed and manufactured by DIA.PRO in Italy), maintains its performances and fully preserves the capability to detect OMICRON BA.4 and BA.5 variants at the same efficiency of other lineages with 100% sensitivity and specificity;

Particularly, our COV19RNALYO.CE test is among many others fully guaranteed & detects the following most common variants currently in circulation:

Alpha B.1.1.7, originated in the United Kingdom

Beta B.1.351, originated in South Africa

Delta B.1.617.2, originated in India

Gamma P.1, originated in Brazil

Lambda C.37, originated in Peru

Omicron B.1.1.529, originated in South Africa.

Omicron subvariants B.4 and B.5, originated in South Africa
