RT-PCR, or real time polymerase chain reaction, is used to detect coronavirus from a nasopharyngeal (nasal secretions) sample, also known as a nasal swab.The RT-PCR technique targets a specific segment of the virus’ genetic material to detect the presence of COVID-19 in a person. RT-PCR works by making thousands of copies of this genetic material to qualitatively assess if the virus is present. The tests only detect the virus while the person is currently infected.
