With the Omicron variant poised to push case numbers in the United States back up again, PCR testing has once again moved to the foreground in our national pandemic prevention strategy. The problem with Omicron from a testing perspective, however, is that it has been shown to evade detection – rendering even some of the most well-known PCR tests significantly less sensitive.
Trax, however, has confirmed that the PhoenixDx multiplex test continues to detect COVID-19 – including the Omicron VOC mutations listed below – at an industry-leading sensitivity.
If you are concerned that your current testing provider has not provided confirmation that its PCR tests remain highly effective against the Omicron variant, it might be time to switch to the PhoenixDx multiplex test. Our high-quality products, immediate availability and white-gloved technical service set the standard for PCR (and antigen) testing in the industry.
