OmeCare Chief of Innovation, Dr Michael Nova, MD, PhD, goes on to add, “rRT-PCR is the gold standard for detecting COVID-19, and OmeCare employs the most advanced and cost-effective microfluidic technologies that increase sensitivity, decrease turnaround times, and will also simultaneously assay for additional respiratory viruses.

The Vivera Pharmaceuticals + OmeCare rRT-PCR specimen collection kits are available for use by medical providers. The quick, painless swab utilizes specimens collected from either the nose or mouth. Once collected, the sample is sent overnight to the OmeCare laboratory for processing.
