What’s PCR COVID-19 Testing?
PCR (nasal swab testing) is recognized by the FDA as the most reliable and accurate form of COVID-19 testing available.
The test detects the presence of COVID-19 genetic material (RNA) using a technique called reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, or RT-PCR. RNA is extracted from your sample and transcribed to DNA. Then the DNA is amplified (many copies are made) so that the lab can obtain a meaningful result.
