COVID-19 Variant identification… in a screening test
CoronaMelt Var is a diagnostic assay for the detection and genotyping of Sars-CoV-2 variants.
CoronaMelt Var allows not only to identify the presence of the virus, but also to discern the different variants in a single process by tracking distinctive mutations. It is currently able to identify mutations associated with 3 variants of coronavirus – English (B.1.1.7)/Alpha, South African (B.1.351)/Beta and Brazilian (P.1)/Gamma – but it can be easily upgraded to extend the genotyping to new variants, once sequenced (the Delta variant is under development), as the virus is constantly evolving.
Being labelled CE IVD, CoronaMelt Var can be used as a Tier 1 test for screening purposes (as majority of these tests are RUO and are used as a Tier 2 test for genotyping after tested positive for Covid).
It also retains all the features of CoronaMelt, i.e. high level of accuracy, it is validated also with saliva samples and without RNA extraction, with significant costs and time savings.
