Bioperfectus Confirmed to Detect the New Strain VUI 202012/01 of SARS-CoV-2 as Coronavirus Variant Spreads

Company news

Bioperfectus is your trustworthy partner encountering variation of SARS-CoV-2.


The new strain VUI 202012/01 of SARS-CoV-2 (also known as B.1.1.7 lineage) has recently caused the panic around the globe.


After a series of critical R&D analysis, we hereby officially confirm that Bioperfectus product COVID-19 Coronavirus Real Time PCR Kit and COVID-19 Coronavirus and Influenza A/B Virus Real Time PCR Kits CAN detect the new strain VUI 202012/01 of SARS-CoV-2 with reliable performance which has already been clinically proven throughout the world.


The announced mutations on the sequence of ORF1a Gene are at 3267 bp5388 bp6954 bp and 11288-11296 bps; mutations on the sequence of N Gene are at 28280 bp and 28977 bp. Targets of Bioperfectus related PCR kits are ORF1ab gene and N gene. But NONE of our detection regions are located at the announced mutations, which assures that the detection scale and performance will NOT be affected by these mutations.
