SpeeDx Pty. Ltd., a developer of innovative molecular diagnostic solutions, have launched a new product line of research reagents to support reflex variant analysis for circulating SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOC). The rapid development of PlexPrime® SARS-CoV-2 Genotyping* tests will support investigations and monitoring of the range of emerging and circulating SARS-CoV-2 VOC that have been linked to increased transmissibility, reduced vaccine efficacy, or other characteristics that may require specific public health actions.1

SpeeDx unique technology excels in mutation detection applications and can readily be applied to variants reported in the SARS-CoV-2 sequence databases. Compatible with standard qPCR instrumentation, the PlexPrime® SARS-CoV-2 Genotyping research reagents can reduce the manual process of preparing positive samples for sequence analysis by identifying samples of interest, focusing downstream activities, and ultimately reducing turn-around and hands-on time for laboratories.

“Utilising our unique universal substrate approach, our rapid-response development team can easily respond to the complex and evolving situations arising from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic” said Elisa Mokany, SpeeDx Chief Technology Officer. “Our unique technology excels in mutation detection applications and can readily be applied to variants reported in the SARS-CoV-2 sequence databases.”

PlexPrime® SARS-CoV-2 Alpha/Beta/Gamma+* the first product in the portfolio, is a single well multiplex designed to detect mutations N501Y, S982A and E484K in the spike gene of SARS-CoV-2 found in B.1.1.7 (Alpha), B.1.351 (Beta), and P.1 (Gamma) VOC. A second multiplex for mutations related to the Delta VOC will be released shortly, and other mutations are currently under assessment. Compatible with standard qPCR instrumentation, the tests can reduce the manual process of preparing positive samples for sequence analysis by identifying samples of interest, focusing downstream activities, and ultimately reducing turn-around and hands-on time for laboratories.
