RT-PCR test kits and VirSNiP Mutation Assays for strain surveillance
In early 2020 SARS-CoV-2 spread from Asia across the world causing the first major pandemic in a century. TIB Molbiol was one of the first companies to come to market, with a SARS testing kit and has been supplying COVID-19 PCR test kits since early January 2020. Over the last 12 months we have delivered over 60 million tests. Of particular concern are the different COVID-19 variants circulating worldwide. These variants have been reported to have increased infectivity, morbidity or mortality. We have developed a variety of VirSNiP Assays that detect the known mutations. These assays can be integrated into routine testing algorithms. Our R&D Department is constantly analyzing newly deposited SARS-CoV-2 sequences, for the presence of variants, that may affect the performance of our kits.
This page contains an overview of currently available tests. Due to the dynamic development of the pandemic we will continue to establish new tests as needed.
