SARS-CoV-2 detection by direct rRT-PCR without RNA extraction
Testing Method Category
Testing Method - Additional Info
comparison between direct PCR using SeeGene AllplexTM 2019-nCoV rRT-PCR with RealStar® SARS-CoV-2 rRT-PCR kit (Altona Diagnostics)
Reamrk: i) SeeGene and Altona kits provide similar efficiency, ii) direct rRT-PCR without RNA extraction is possible if samples are collected in UTM or molecular water; ii), specimens stored in water should be screened rapidly, iii) RNA extraction is necessary if samples are in saline water or Hanks medium.
