SZABO-SCANDIC supports you in the fight against the pandemic!
Friday, the 26th of November, the WHO has declared an additional variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus as VOC (Variant of Concern): the variant B.1.1.529 or omicron variant. This variant shows over 30 mutations in the spike protein. Some of the mutations are already known from previous VOC to elevate the infectious potential and to escape the immune system.
The spike mutations in omicron are:
A67V, Δ69-70, T95I, G142D/Δ143-145, Δ211/L212I, ins214EPE, G339D, S371L, S373P, S375F, K417N, N440K, G446S, S477N, T478K, E484A, Q493K, G496S, Q498R, N501Y, Y505H, T547K, D614G, H655Y, N679K, P681H, N764K, D796Y, N856K, Q954H, N969K, L981F.
We offer a wide range of antibodies from GeneTex whose immunogens do not contain Omikron mutation sites. They are ideal for the research on this variant. Furthermore, GeneTex is working hard to produce new proteins for the Omikron-Varaiante, which will be presented soon.
Our supplier eENZYME worked at full blast to deliver new spike RBD proteins and new pseudoviral particles to the latest omicron variant.
Our SARS-CoV-2 RT PCR Kits from R-Biopharm detect also the new omicron variant B.1.1.529 (official statement) and are immediately available!
Available in 2 different sizes: the 100 reactions kit RBIPG6815 and the cheaper 200 reactions kit RBIPG6820.
We offer a diverse portfolio of SARS-CoV-2 products: Coronavirus Listing
