Roche and TIB Molbiol, a newly acquired subsidiary within the Roche Diagnostics division, have added three additional Research Use Only, or RUO, test kits for the detection of mutations present in the novel B.1.1.529 Omicron SARS-CoV-2 variant: VirSNip SARS Spike ins214EPE, VirSNiP SARS-CoV-2 Spike S371L S373P, and VirSNip SARS Spike E484A, the company announced. "The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an evolving and complex situation, and Roche is committed to responding to healthcare's biggest challenges. The teams at TIB Molbiol have worked around the clock since the new variant emerged, and today we are able to offer a test that can specifically identify the novel B.1.1.529 Omicron SARS-CoV-2 variant to help better understand its spread and behaviour. There is still much to learn about Omicron. It's critical to identify Omicron quickly and accurately, which will help inform ongoing research - including the further development of therapeutics and vaccines - and potentially stop or slow down the advance of this new variant," said Thomas Schinecker, CEO Roche Diagnostics.
