What is the RT-PCR test?
The RT-PCR test is a diagnostic test that looks for genetic material from the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a sample from your respiratory system. This sample is usually collected by inserting a long swab into your nose and taking a sample from the back of your throat. The RT-PCR test is considered the gold standard in COVID-19 testing because it can detect the virus at a very early stage, even before symptoms develop.
The RT-PCR test works by amplifying small amounts of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s genetic material that may be present in your sample. This amplification process is called reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The test can detect even very small amounts of the virus in your sample, making it the most sensitive test available.
The RT-PCR test is considered the most reliable test for COVID-19 for several reasons. First, it can detect the virus at a very early stage before symptoms develop. This means that infected individuals can be identified and isolated before they have a chance to spread the virus to others. Second, the RT-PCR test has a very low rate of false negatives. False negatives occur when the test result is negative, but the person is infected with the virus. The RT-PCR test is very sensitive and can detect even very small amounts of the virus, reducing the risk of false negatives.
