The assay is intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory (e.g., nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal swabs, nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate, nasal aspirate) or saliva specimens collected from individuals suspected of being exposed to COVID-19 or who meet the clinical and/or epidemiological criteria.

See below for more information on shipping guidelines, specimen collection instructions, and technical information about our rRT-PCR assay.
