REAL-TIME Test Details

SARS-CoV-2 RT Real Time PCR Test Details

Beechtree Molecular uses a reverse transcription real-time PCR assay. The test uses primers to amplify
three specific regions within the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), and a fluorescent probe to detect amplification. The kit includes 3 primer-probe sets corresponding to the RdRp, N, and E genes in SARS-
CoV-2 genes, as well as RNase P internal control target:

  • Accuracy. Previously characterized positive and negative patient samples were tested. A 100% concordance with expected results was obtained.
  • Specificity. The kit manufacturer performed an in-depth specificity analysis of the GeneFinder COVID-19 PCR Kit. They performed wet bench testing for 20 species and in silico cross-reactivity analysis on another 18 species, including 6 non-COVID-19 coronavirus species. No cross-reactivity was detected in any wet bench or in silico specificity analyses for a specificity of >99%.
  • Sensitivity and Limit of Detection. The assay correctly identified the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in samples analyzed with >99% sensitivity at a LOD of 500 copies/mL (0.5 copies/μL).
  • Precision. Reproducibility and repeatability were assessed by evaluating the accuracy of results from replicated samples tested within the same batch, different batch and/or day, and different instruments for >99% precision.
OUR STORY

In 2015, Beechtree Diagnostics was established to fill the gap left by other toxicology laboratories in providing quality testing, reporting, and service to physicians and professionals dealing with the difficulties of Mental Health, Substance Use Disorder, Pain Management Treatment, as well as Court Ordered Substance Abuse Testing. Beechtree created unique processes to directly benefit medical professionals and their patients. Beechtree Diagnostics is a CLIA certified and CAP accredited high complexity laboratory located in Draper, UT.

In the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Beechtree was invited to expand offices in Anchorage, Alaska. Beechtree Molecular offers a comprehensive solution for COVID-19 testing with a focus on the highest quality science, automation, and sub-24-hour turnaround times. Beechtree’s solution provides CLIA compliant, scientifically reliable testing at a cost and speed that allows organizations to more accurately make decisions to manage the COVID-19 health crisis.
