A shortage of COVID-19 testing supplies is hampering people’s ability to perform timely RT-PCR testing. A key bottleneck is viral RNA extraction, which involves multiple steps, reagents and devices.
Our team is now investigating whether we can apply our PCRopsis technology and know-how to facilitate direct RT-PCR from nasal-pharyngeal and saliva samples by skipping the RNA extraction step.
Stay tuned for research updates on this promising approach in the battle against the pandemic.
