Polymerase Chain Reaction (or PCR) test methods look for the presence of viral RNA within a collected specimen. A positive result indicates that viral RNA is present within the patient-thus indicating that they have SARS-CoV-2 (virus responsible for COVID). A negative result indicates at the time of test viral RNA was not present.
PCR-based methods are highly sensitive and can detect even trace amounts of DNA/RNA. It is also an extremely common methodology used for other respiratory illnesses such as the seasonal flu, rhinovirus and adenovirus. PCR has accuracies of up to 100% (100% of all positive cases show up as positive on test).
There are many factors that may reduce accuracy, such as poor collection methods. To mitigate this, our team of specialized patient representatives are extensively trained to ensure proper collection.
