Can you explain this to your patient?

“This is a Real-Time PCR Coronavirus (COVID-19) CE IVD assay, an in vitro diagnostic test based on Real-Time PCR technology, developed for specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA.
The probe system is based on the standard hydrolysis probe system known as TaqMan® Technology. The COVID19 specific probe is labeled with the FAM fluorophore and the internal control is labeled with the HEX fluorophore.”

You probably don’t want to nor need to.

But …. are you comfortable enough ordering something that you, being a highly qualified professional, don’t really understand?
After having taken this course you will have this comfort. Likely, some of the concepts covered in this e-learning you are already -more or less- familiar with. Refresh your memories, or take the quiz first and try skipping the topic.

Cell life
