Applied DNA Sciences to Launch Linea 2.0 COVID-19 Assay to Detect Omicron Variant; Shares Jump in Premarket

8:00AM ET 11/29/2021 MT Newswires
Applied DNA Sciences Inc (APDN) said it will launch its Linea 2.0 COVID-19 Assay, a new RT-PCR assay for the SARS-CoV-2 E and N genes in the next few days.

The company also said that its Linea 1.0 Assay provides a "high-specificity reflex test" for the Omicron variant, and may potentially be used as a reflex test to indicate the presence of Omicron in samples that have tested positive for COVID-19 via third-party assays that cannot detect the new variant.

Shares of Applied DNA Sciences are up more than 34% in premarket trading.
