This PCR test SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus. The COVID-19 Collection Kit is testing for the presence or absence of RNA from SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2), which causes the disease Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) lab analysis is the gold-standard for COVID-19 detection, confirming the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a sample.
This test works by first converting the RNA of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which may be present in a sample, into DNA. This DNA will then be amplified to an amount which can then be detected and analyzed by our team of clinical scientists within our CLIA-certified labs.
