The COVID-19 RT-PCR Test is a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) test for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in upper and lower respiratory specimens (nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, sputum, lower respiratory tract aspirates, bronchoalveolar lavage, and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate) collected from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider (HCP), as well as upper respiratory specimens (nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, anterior nasal swabs, or mid-turbinate swabs) collected from any individual, including individuals without symptoms or other reasons to suspect COVID19.

Reverse-transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) test is the first to be produced and commonly used when the COVID-19 pandemic started (Corman et al., January 2020), and they remain the primary method for diagnosis. Antigen tests are still used and produced, but they are not commonly available and have varying levels of reliability. Please see the rapid te for more information on antigen and rapid testing.
