SARS CoV-2 Mutation

Tentang Webinar Ini

SARS-CoV-2 has undergone many changes and has undergone mutations. Currently, WHO and researchers around the world are tracking three variants of the virus mutation. The first is B.1.1.7 which was first identified in Great Britain. The second is B.1.351 which was first identified in South Africa. And the third is P.1, the first, circulating in Brazil, but identified among travelers arriving in Japan.

SARS CoV-2 Detection & Surveilence Workflow Solution

Speaker: Chloe Chin, M.Sc

Vela Diagnostic will share exciting new product launches: ViroKey™ SQ FLEX SARS-CoV-2 Genotyping Assay, as well as our ViroKey™ SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR ID to detect mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 RNA in nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs. Based on a highly automated workflow from sample extraction to report generation, our upcoming products enable rapidly whole genome sequencing and detection of the variants (UK B1.1.7, South African B.1.351 and Brazil P.1 strains) respectively to support the molecular epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 research.

Covid19 Portofolio – Challenges and Solutions

Speaker: Ahmad Utomo, PhD

What does the SARS-CoV-2 virus mutation mean in terms of transmission, severity and potential impact on diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. So far, the information is that there is an increase in the transmission of virus variants B.1.1.7 and B.1.351. And this resulted from a mutation that allowed this viral variant to bind to cells, human cells, more easily. Researchers haven't seen an increase in transmission with P.1, but they're currently being investigated. In terms of severity, there are several studies from the UK which show that B.1.1.7 has increased severity.
