The Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test is a COVID-19 high-quality, “Gold Standard” test for COVID-19 testing. PCR uses nucleic acid- amplification technology and detects the active infection with the virus which causes COVID-19.
The RT-PCR is recommended by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since it is the most accurate type of diagnostic test available currently at a rate of 99.99% accuracy. PCR testing also detects non-symptomatic patients infected with COVID-19.
At Promus, our COVID-19 PCR tests are designed in a way to detect all variants of COVID-19.
This test has been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories.
