    Abstract

    Choosing the right solution for your laboratory’s SARS-CoV-2 testing needs can be a difficult decision. With the dynamic demand on labs, making the wrong choice could be catastrophic. In this presentation, we will be discussing the critical factors to consider when choosing the set up for your testing needs:

    • Assay sensitivity and reliability

    • Availability of reagents

    • Throughput and labor requirements

    • Sample-to-solution workflow

    • Support

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Considerations for choosing an RT-PCR assay for SARS-CoV-2 testing

    2. Components of the SARS-CoV-2 testing workflow
