About RT-PCR Tests
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are the gold-standard for COVID-19.
Contrary to rapid antigen tests, PCR tests do require several hours, specialised laboratory equipment, and highly skilled medical technologists.
You may have heard of "RT-PCR" testing required for entry into some countries.
It stands for "reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction" (what a mouthful!) and as you may already have guessed, RT-PCR is simply one type of PCR test.
What's so special about RT-PCR tests, then?
They can be used to detect viruses (e.g., SARS, HIV) that store their biological blueprint codes as RNA, instead of DNA (e.g., humans, cats). Learn more in the video below.
Acumen Diagnostics is a clinical laboratory licensed by the MOH in 2020 to provide these molecular diagnostics services, such as SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests.
