Recognition of the Breton Variant by the RT-LAMP Duo Kit is important to ensure public health safety where accurate testing against multiple types of SARS-CoV-2 variants is absolutely crucial in sustaining efforts against pandemic control. Furthermore, the assay detects newly emerged variants know as Nigerian, Philippine, Californian and Indian.

Genomtec’s flagship solution – the Genomtec ID is a mobile diagnostic system employing microfluidic system and the proprietary, patented SNAAT® technology. This innovative diagnostic system will be able to carry out several tests from one sample simultaneously, including causal determination of respiratory tract infections or sexually transmitted diseases, even in 15 minutes.
