COVID-19 Testing

We are actively involved in the global effort against COVID-19. In the early days of the pandemic, an accredited laboratory was set up. Several thousand RT-PCR tests have since been performed. We also sequence SARS-CoV-2 variants using Oxford Nanopore sequencing technologies.

Benefits of COVID-19 PCR Testing

  • Widely considered as the most reliable method of diagnosing COVID-19
  • Results within 24h

Benefits of COVID-19 Nanopore Sequencing

  • Rapid identification of SARS-CoV-2 variants
  • Limited cost and high quality

Process

  1. Sample collection with nasopharyngeal swab at the Institute of Pathology and Genetics
  2. Inactivation of the virus and viral RNA extraction
  3. RT-PCR for the specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA

Starting material

Nasopharyngeal swab
