Test Information: The Nucleic Acid Amplification Test was performed via the Biomeme PCR Thermocycler.

This test is a molecular in vitro test based on NAAT technology. The Biomeme SARS-CoV-2 Real-Time RT-PCR Test contains primers and probes and internal controls used in RT-PCR for the in vitro qualitative detection of SARSCoV-2 RNA in nasopharyngeal and nasal/ oropharyngeal (throat) swab specimens.

Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA and all positive samples are forwarded to the provincial laboratory as required. An indeterminate result means that one of either the E gene or RdRp (RNA dependant RNA Polymerase gene) was detected, but not both.
