What Tests Could Potentially Be Used for the Screening, Diagnosis and Monitoring of COVID-19 and What Are Their Advantages and Disadvantages? [open pdf - 0B]
From the Background: "A range of molecular techniques ranging from central laboratory testing to point-of-care tests are under development or already available for the diagnosis and management of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] patients. These techniques, while well-known to researchers and clinicians with a background in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) amplification, as well as antibody and antigen assays, may be relatively unknown to the broader community. This document was written to outline and explain the basic principles of the main COVID-19 diagnostic tests currently in use or in trials."
