For COVID-19 testing, at CARINGdx, we take TWO SAMPLES - one from the BACK OF THE THROAT (oropharynx) and another from the NOSE. We use the BEST swabs and viral transport media and our technicians who collect samples are TRAINED by the top management themselves.
One of the key steps in COVID-19 testing is RNA extraction. CARINGdx was the FIRST IN INDIA to use Genolution's FDA-approved RNA isolation system which ensures ZERO CONTAMINATION and hence correct reports.
Real-Time RT-PCR Testing
Real-Time RT-PCR testing, or rRT-PCR testing is the GOLD STANDARD technique for diagnosis of COVID-19 disease. It involves AMPLIFYING parts of the Coronavirus RNA and then using a FLUORESCENT DYE to detect the quantity of viral RNA in the sample.
