Reverse Transcription– Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) Test
KKM-approved high precision and accuracy test
The Ministry of Health, Centre of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and internationally approved swab test for Covid-19 with an accuracy that is close to 100%. The RT-PCR test is designed to trace the presence of specific genetic material in any pathogen, including a virus. The sample collected will be treated with several chemical solutions to extract only the RNA present in the sample. If the virus is present in a sample, these fragments attach themselves to target sections of the viral DNA. The real time RT–PCR technique is highly sensitive and has a lower potential for contamination or errors.
