The world’s first test for the British strain COVID-19 was registered in Russia

The Central Research Institute of Epidemiology has registered a test system developed by it that detects the British strain coronavirus… About this on Monday Rospotrebnadzor reports.

“The new test system quickly detects the presence of a mutant strain, which is realized due to a special selection of oligonucleotides for effective amplification of the British mutation, and is designed for the maximum concentration of the virus. This avoids false positive results when detecting mutations for samples with a very high viral load”, – said in a message from the department.

TASS clarifies that the test has successfully passed all clinical trials, it has high accuracy and is already registered for use in Russia.
