PrimBio now offers COVID-19 testing. COVID-19 is a disease caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and many other governing bodies. The SARS-CoV-2 virus can cause serious health conditions and has caused numerous deaths in the US and around the world. Therefore, to stop the spread of the virus and reduce the death rate, COVID-19 testing is paramount. PrimBio has validated the Shimadzu SARS-CoV-2 real time RT-PCR test, which detects two viral RNA regions (N1 and N2) of the nucleocaspid (N) gene of the novel corona virus, for clinical use. This assay has over 96% accuracy and is one of the most sensitive tests available in the current COVID-19 testing market. The results of this test can help contact tracing, reduce the spread of the virus and reduce the amount of deaths in the US.
