Poster 1: Seth Ack – Diagnostic Capabilities of Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing for COVID-19

Faculty mentor: Lars Laurentius

In this project, we focused on reviewing the current testing methods for diagnosing COVID-19 in patients that have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 . My role as part of this project was to examine the current capabilities and limitations of nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) in detecting the presences of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. This was accomplished through an extensive literature analysis evaluating the effect of sample type, timing of sample collection, and type of NAAT used.
