PentaBase Is Testing for COVID-19 Mutations
PentaBase is monitoring the COVID-19 development and will test for all relevant mutations.
As the first company in Denmark, PentaBase has developed a new analysis, which can detect the more infectious variants, cluster B.1.1.7 and cluster B.1.351/501Y. Our real-time PCR assay is compatible with both cluster B.1.1.7(Multiplex N501Y/P681H), cluster B.1.351/501Y(Simplex E484K), and cluster 5, and we will always have an analysis in hand in case of a new variant.
PentaBase will test all samples for cluster B.1.1.7, cluster B.1.351/501Y, or cluster 5 without further cost, to offer an even better service for all our customers. The customer will be informed and notified within 24 hours, in a case where a sample is tested positive for mutations.
Why is it important to test for COVID-19 variants?
PentaBase helps Denmark fight COVID-19 through fast detection of infection and close monitoring of the development of SARS-CoV-2 mutations.
Our experience demonstrates that the key to controlling the spread of infection and helping the fight against COVID-19 is through faster and more sensitive detection of SARS-CoV-2 and relevant variants.
PentaBase is ready to test for all types of mutations as soon as they pose a risk to our society.
How can I get tested for mutations?
You do not need to take any active action. PentaBase tests all positive samples for cluster B.1.1.7(Multiplex N501Y/P681H), cluster B.1.351/501Y(Simplex E484K), and cluster 5, and you will be notified if one of your submitted samples contains the mutation.
