Monitoring Variants of Concern
On November 26, 2021, both WHO and ECDC designated B.1.1.529 as a Variant of Concern (VOC) and named it Omicron. Siemens Healthineers has conducted internal assessments to confirm that this new variant is unlikely to impact the performance of the CLINITEST® Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test. Like other variants, the Omicron variant has mutations on the spike protein and the CLINITEST Rapid COVID-19 Antigen test does not target the spike proteins to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Siemens Healthineers is committed to monitoring all current and emerging Variants of Concern (VOC) to ensure the test results remain accurate and reliable.
