Eurobio Scientific Launches the First Pcr Test Allowing Simultaneous Sars-Cov-2 Virus Screening and Detection of the Delta and Omicron Variants in a Single Reaction


  • Test to detect the presence of the Omicron variant and type the Delta variant during routine COVID screening
  • First test with multiplex technology requiring only one reaction
  • PCR result obtained in just 45 minutes
  • Proprietary test available in RUO format

Paris, November 30, 2021 – 5:45pm

Eurobio Scientific (FR0013240934, ALERS, PEA-PME eligible), a leading French group in specialty in vitro medical diagnostics, announces the launch of a new proprietary test, EurobioPlex SARS-CoV-2 Fast Screening & Variants Detection (SARS-CoV -2 Fast-SVD, EBX-047), a real-time multiplex PCR * test for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and the Delta and Omicron variants.

EBX-047 is a kit developed and manufactured in France by Eurobio Scientific, allowing, in a single PCR well, the screening of the coronavirus and the detection of the two currently predominant variants, including Omicron, which could present a risk of immune escape. The test performs a standard screening with two genes, and targets the L452R mutation present on the Delta variant, and the K417N mutation present on the Omicron variant. This orientation test with a very fast (45 minutes) PCR phase, is integrated with the other tests in the EurobioPlex range for open instruments available in large hospital and private medical biology laboratories.

Pending CE marking, the SARS-CoV-2 Fast-SVD kit is already available for sale as a Research Use Only (RUO) test.

With this new test adapted to the Omicron variant, Eurobio Scientific confirms its continued investment to design and develop the tools necessary to manage and fight against the current pandemic and its evolution. The SARS-CoV-2 Fast-SVD kit is thus the first test to enable real time monitoring of the spread of the Omicron variant, and in the context of global health monitoring, to explore its possible ability to escape the immune system of vaccinated patients.

* The “Polymerase Chain Reaction” (PCR) is a method based on the selective multiplication of target DNA sequences, which makes it possible to detect specific DNA sequences present in a product.
