How do we know for certain if new cases of COVID-19 are caused by the Omicron variant? Most tests used by commercial and public health labs detect if a person is carrying the virus, but cannot tell which variant.

Fortunately, there is a commercial test that can aid in the ability to detect Omicron. BBC Radio talked with Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Director of Medical and Scientific Affairs, Manoj Gandhi, to discuss this world-leading technology.

This podcast covers why experts are concerned about Omicron, how testing and vaccination status play a role, and an advantage that can be gained with the Applied Biosystems TaqPath COVID-19 diagnostic assay.
