COVID-19 Testing: PCR Swab (DTPM)
The DTPM COVID-19 RT-PCR test is intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs, nasal swabs, and mid-turbinate swab specimens.
Nasopharyngeal swabs are considered the gold standard for COVID-19 Testing. The swab collection should only be performed by trained medical professionals for the most accurate results.
Analytical Sensitivity: 99.9%
Analytical Specificity: 99.9%
Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA; clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine patient infection status.
Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient treatment or other patient management decisions.
