COVID-19 Testing

About COVID-19 Testing
The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created a global pandemic with a high rate of transmission. This novel disease is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT), most commonly with a reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay, to detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA from the upper respiratory tract is the preferred initial diagnostic test for COVID-19.1,2 Speed and certainty of detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus within tested populations are key to identifying and isolating potential outbreaks within a community and enabling employees to provide business continuity services.
