PCR Nasal Swabs
Principle's Diagnostic SARS-CoV-2 RNA, Qualitative Real-Time RT-PCR:
PCR detects the genetic information of the virus. That’s only possible if the virus is there and someone is actively infected.
The COVID-19 PCR Test is a sensitive molecular test that targets the detection of three SARS- CoV 2 genes and provides information as to those patients that are currently infectious. PCR test results give a good indication of who is infected. This is information that can break the transmission chain of the virus.
For the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 in upper respiratory specimens (nasopharyngeal) from individuals suspected of COVID-19.
• High Complexity PCR Gold Standard for detection of viruses
• Specifically designed for the detection of SARS-CoV-2
• 72 hour turn-around time
• Industry Leading sensitivity and detection
Lowest Limit of Detection (LOD)
• Comprehensive Viral, Bacterial, and ABR panel available for symptomatic patients.
Principle Labs antibody serology test will be able to identify
patients who are both symptomatic and asymptomatic to the
Sars-Cov2 virus as well as identify patients who have developed
an acute infection and/or a successful immune response.
Total antibody Test (IGM/IGG)
Tests for patients that have a current infection or have been recently infected.
Reflex to IGG
Tests for patients that have developed a successful immune response to Sar's Cov2 virus.
Ortho’s Total and IgG Antibody tests with 100% specificity enables health care professionals at Principle Diagnostics to provide more confident patient management decisions to prevent further spread of the disease, and potentially save lives,” said Michael S. Iskra, President, North America Commercial Operations, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics. “This commitment to excellence exhibited by Principle Diagnostics makes us a proud partner alongside them in the long term, sustainable management of this disease.”
