The test is a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) test. It was developed to detect the presence of two separate regions of the SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA, and analysis is performed in a high-complexity CLIA-certified laboratory. The test was validated under a rigorous IRB-approved protocol that included studies of symptomatic and asymptomatic patients, as well as samples from individuals presumed to not have COVID-19 as confirmed by third party laboratories. The following data was submitted to the FDA:
- Sensitivity: 97.1%
- Specificity: 98.2%
- Positive Predictive Value: 97.1%
- Negative Predictive Value: 98.2%
