COVID-19 RT PCR Testing 


SARS-CoV-2 (the COVID-19 Virus)

In response to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) outbreak, Thermo Fisher Scientific has worked rapidly to develop a new multiplex real-time RT-PCR diagnostic kit to enable clinical and public health laboratories to quickly diagnose COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection. The Applied Biosystems TaqPath COVID-19 kit is a fast, highly sensitive multiplex diagnostic solution that contains both the assays and controls needed for the real-time PCR detection of RNA from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Approved sample types include:

  • Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL)

  • Mid-turbinate swabs

  • Nasal swabs

  • Nasopharyngeal swabs

  • Nasopharyngeal aspirate (nasal aspirate)

  • Oropharyngeal swabs

For Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) only. For prescription use only. For in vitro diagnostic use.

Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
