Der Kombi PCR Test L (Corona, RSV & Influenza) schütze dich und deine Umgebung
Why qPCR method is suitable for SARS-CoV-2 detection and how it works?
The qPCR method is ideal for detecting the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus because it can effectively detect small amounts of viral RNA.
Here, the viral RNA is transcribed into cDNA. The cDNA strands are separated by temperature changes and the specific primers can bind. Only if the virus is present in the sample does DNA form, which is detected by fluorescence and thus a positive test result is obtained. The high precision of the PCR enables the detection of even the smallest amounts of virus, which is essential for a fast and reliable detection of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
