stick “Omicron” New strain of covid Omicron (Omicron) Covid-19 mutant species The most worrisome during this time already ATK that can detect Omicron Is there or not? Ministry of Health confirm The ATK test kit in use can detect all species. And the Department of Medical Sciences’ method of detecting species can be detected even with additional mutations. but even then Many people still want to know. Omicron test kit Which brand is effective for detecting omicron strains? (Omicron species) some
Dr. Anan Chongkaewwatana virology researcher Director of the Animal Health and Management Innovation Research Group National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (Biotech) National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) Post a message through Anan Jongkaewwattana open test results “Omicron” ATK that can detect Omicron total 7 brands
Dr. Anan stated that Researchers from the University of Geneva tested the effectiveness of seven ATK brands in use in Switzerland. in detecting the COVID-19 virus Omicron species (Omicron) compared to various previous species found that ATK Omicron test kit both 7 brands can detect omicron However, due to their relatively different efficacy and compared to other virus strains, Omicron (Omicron) seems to be more difficult to detect. This tended to be in all ATKs tested in the study.
Dr. Anan stated that ATK that can detect Omicron Further, in the graph of the results below, the Y-axis is the viral load at which the virus can also be measured. ATK The higher the graph, the better ATK can detect that virus strain, for example, ATK brand I can detectdeltaas low as 3.30 PFU/ml or virus at 10^3.3 or 2000 particles/ml but can be tested “Omicron” as low as 3.5 PFU/ml or 10^3.5 or about 3200 particles/ml which can be seen Some brands are even able to detect omicrons. But it may take a large amount of virus to get a positive result. For example, Brand III and Brand VI require up to 10^4 virus or 10,000 particles/ml.
