SARS-CoV-2 Variant Surveillance

Identify and classify all variants of concern —  including the sequences representative of the Omicron and Delta — via technology designed to avoid dropouts due to mutations in primer binding regions.

Let's Talk About SARS Variants

What is SARS-CoV-2 Genomic Surveillance?

At Psomagen, SARS-CoV-2 Variant Surveillance is a genome-wide variant characterization of the virus known to cause COVID-19. As new strains of this novel coronavirus appear over time, surveillance efforts serve public health interests by tracking break-outs as well as transmission and mutation rates. This analysis includes further classification of specific variants within diverse sample types, including wastewater, and is an important defense for outbreak containment.


Why is Surveillance Important?


Use our IDT® xGen™ SARS-CoV-2 Expanded Amplicon Panel to generate a readout of all variants of concern, including Omicron and Delta. This amplicon sequencing panel contains overlapping primers and super amplicon technology that is designed to avoid dropouts (non-amplification due to mutations in primer binding regions). You can be confident that our panel will amplify not only the latest variants but those that emerge in the future.

What Can You Do?

Detect Novel Variants

Identify mutations via amplicon technology that avoids non-amplification (dropouts) due to mutations in primer binding regions.

Perform Government Reporting

Obtain data that can be used for public health tracking as requirements continue to evolve.

SARS-CoV-2 Variant Identification With IDT®

xGen™ SARS-CoV-2 Expanded Amplicon Panel, 96 rxn
  • Best for:
    Monitoring virus evolution and confidently identifying variants for strain classification to inform vaccine development, diagnostic testing, and mitigation strategies.

  • Benefits:
    Overlapping primers provide full coverage of target regions to ensure that all variants are identified, even when those variants are deletions.
