RNA détection Test by COVID-19 PCR

RNA detection, as in Public Health

COVID-19 diagnostic test

Our test uses the same procedure as the one performed by Public Health (santé publique), that is, detecting the RNA of the virus

The molecular detection of the virus SARS-CoV-2 is performed by means of a nasal and throat swab, which is then dispatched to the lab by safe transport so that the lab can carry out the analysis to obtain a diagnosis of COVID-19.

The detection of RNA makes it possible to diagnose symptomatic as well as asymptomatic people. According to INESSS, incomplete evidence, coming from various sources with multiple limits, report that the proportion of asymptomatic individuals can be high.

How it Works

For SARS-CoV-2, the diagnosis is usually  confirmed by the detection of its viral RNA (RT-PCR) based on nasal swab collections. It is the best way to detect the infection in its acute phase, which serological tests are unable to do. However, there are limits which we must keep in mind : a false negative can happen especially at the beginning or toward the end of a SARS-CoV‑2 infection, when the viral load could be very low.

The Viral Load – Observations by the INESSS

The INESSS makes the following observations :

  • The viral load of SARS-CoV-2 evolves depending on the stage of the illness and affects the results of the RT-PCR test.
  • Usually, false negatives are due to an overly weak viral load at the time of the collection, especially if it was performed at the very beginning or end of the viral infection.
  • One or more negatives do not rule out the possibility of a SARS-CoV-2 infection.
