​The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. Currently, individuals infected by SARS-CoV-2 are the main source of transmission; asymptomatic carriers are also known as a source of transmission. Based on the current epidemiological information, the incubation period can last from 1 to 14 days, where the average time before symptoms occur is about 5 days. Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.

Healgen Scientific, as part of its continuous COVID-19 variant monitoring plan, is actively monitoring the newly identified SARS-CoV-2 strain, named Omicron. As you may be aware, several SARS-CoV-2 variants have emerged globally during this pandemic.

The scientific community has determined that Omicron (B.1.1.529) is located in the spike protein of the virus. Healgen’s Rapid COVID-19 antigen test detects the nucleocapsid protein which is contained within the cell wall (envelope).

We are confident that our test should be able to detect the Omicron variant, due to the location of where the mutation occurs (1,2).

The scientific community is working diligently and expeditiously to understand this new variant’s behaviour. Healgen Scientific will continue to closely follow any developments.
