ACON Laboratories, Inc. has been continuously monitoring the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants. The Omicron variant of concern remains the dominant variant circulating globally, accounting for nearly all sequences submitted to GISAID. Among the Omicron variant, BA.2.12.1, BA.4, and BA.5 represent the highest proportion of circulating variants.
Testing conducted by a third-party laboratory between May and July 2022 has indicated that the
Flowflex™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test does detect Omicron BA.2.12.1, BA.4, and BA.5 in patient specimens.
ACON will continue to monitor the evolution of SARS-CoV-2 variants in circulation worldwide and
evaluate the performance of our assays against future variants to maintain the high level of product performance our customers have come to rely upon.
