What is the methodology?
Quantitative Real Time-PCR assays provided by CDC and Thermo Fisher.
What is the sensitivity and specificity of the test for the COVID 19?
Sensitivity (10 copies of viral RNA/ul). Specificity (100%), tested across a number of respiratory bacterial and viral pathogen positive patient samples. Also check the in silico analysis provided by CDC and Thermo Fisher for their assays.
How was your testing validated, Who provided the reference material for the validation? Initially the validations were done using RNA and DNA control materials provided by the manufacturers. Since then we have done correlation studies with other labs running the test and have established a 100% positive detection rate.
What is the false negative rate on the COVID testing?
As of now, 0%
