COVID-19 TESTING METHODOLOGY
North West Labs is performing real-time PCR testing using Thermo Fisher Scientific’s TaqPath Covid-19 Kit for detection of the COVID-19 virus caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection.
PCR-based tests detect live virus in symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. These individuals are contagious and can infect others.
A positive PCR result confirms the patient has COVID-19 as opposed to other conditions with similar symptoms such as the flu, the common cold and allergies.
A person who tests positive with a PCR-based test should be re-tested when symptoms resolve to confirm they are no longer carrying live virus; therefore, they are not contagious.
