The past year has seen an exponential increase in Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) testing like never before due to it being the 'gold standard' test to detect SARS-CoV-2 during the pandemic. PCR is used for its high sensitivity and simplicity which enables it to identify bacteria, viruses and detect early infection in many chronic diseases.

As a pioneer in clinical diagnostics, Novacyt has a proven history of responding quickly to changing global health needs, including providing testing solutions for Zika, swine flu and Ebola viruses. Solidifying this position, Novacyt were among the first to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, providing a rapid and reliable CE-IVD marked SARS-CoV-2 assay kit. Whatever testing you are conducting, join us as we discuss how you can make your PCR more effective! We will look at ways of improving the clinical sensitivity of the workflow, understanding limits of clinical performance data and ensuring the right controls are used during tests!
