Saliva Screening Test for SARS-CoV-2 Virus
Our lab will test for the presence of three SARS-CoV-2-specific genes by reverse transcriptase real-time PCR (rRT-PCR; TaqPath COVID-19 Combo Kit, Thermo Fisher) developed by Biocerna. The Saliva Screening Test for SARS-CoV-2 uses a sensitive, real-time RNA- PCR assay specifically designed for the detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
This screening test is especially important as a saliva specimen is much easier to collect using a sponge-like swab than the deep nasal pharyngeal swab which is more difficult to use, uncomfortable, and generally requires an experienced individual to collect.
It is run in our CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments act 1988.) certified and CAP (College of American Pathologists) accredited High Complexity Laboratory. It is as sensitive and specific as the nasal pharyngeal test in the range of 98-99%. This test is FDA approved under Emergency Use Authorization and is CLIA certified.
