Covid-19 PCR Testing

What is a PCR Test?

The HDPCR™ SARS-CoV-2 Assay is a reverse transcription real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) test intended for the qualitative detection of RNA from SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection.
Principles of Procedure
The HDPCR SARS-CoV-2 Assay uses TaqMan® probe chemistry and proprietary analysis to allow qRT-PCR multiplexing within a single-well. The product includes the same N1 and N2 oligonucleotide primer and probe sequences for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA and the human RNase P gene used in the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel for Emergency Use Only, effective 3/15/2020.
