About the Test
Under the trademark CoviTek series, our SARS-CoV-2 Detection by RT-qPCR is a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test based on the CDC EUA test panel, using the high throughput ABI 7900HT Fast amplification system. The SARS CoV-2 primer and probe sets are designed to detect RNA from the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid gene, in epitopes N1 and N2, in clinical samples. Our CoviTek test is fully validated according to EUA requirements and is currently reviewed by the FDA.
How does PCR Testing for Covid-19 work?
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing can detect very small amounts of viral genetic material in a sample by duplication it many times over through a complex process called amplification.
