Test Code 2040 detects the genetic signature (RNA) of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in swab samples from contaminated environmental surfaces using clinical instrumentation using RT-PCR for specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). RT-PCR, a molecular diagnostic test detects and quantifies the viral RNA using real time (RT) reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Positive results indicate the presence of the viral genetic material SARS- CoV-2 nucleic material but does not rule out the presence of other viral and bacterial contamination. The results are reported as detect or non-detect per sample provided.
