      Covid-19 Tests

      Types of tests we provide
      rt-pcr

      Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is a type of PCR that entails amplification of specific mRNA extracted from small samples. It removes the time-consuming mRNA purification process needed by traditional cloning methods. In addition to the normal PCR reagents, reverse transcriptase and an RNA sample are used in RT-PCR. The reaction mixture is heated to 37°C, allowing reverse transcription of the RNA sample to produce cDNA. This cDNA binds to one of the primers, allowing the first-strand synthesis to take place. The standard PCR procedure is followed, and dsDNA is generated.

      When the body is infected with a virus, antibodies are produced to help neutralize the virus. Antibodies can be detected using blood tests (also known as serology tests or serology immunoassays). Antibody testing can be used to determine what percentage of a population has already been infected, and then the disease’s mortality rate can be calculated. They can also be used to figure out how much antibody is in a unit of convalescent plasma, to treat COVID-19, or to see whether a vaccine produces a sufficient immune response. The efficacy and duration of defense against SARS-CoV-2 antibodies have yet to be determined. As a result, a positive antibody test does not always mean immunity to potential infections. Furthermore, it is unknown if mild or asymptomatic infections contain enough antibodies to be detected by a test. Antibodies to certain diseases will last for years in the bloodstream, while antibodies to others fade away.

      F.A.QFrequently Asked Questions

      What is a Corona Virus and What it does ?

      Coronaviruses are a diverse group of viruses that can infect both animals and humans. Several coronaviruses have been linked to respiratory infections in humans, ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Extreme Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) .

      What are the symptoms of Covid-19 ?

      Fever, tiredness, and a dry cough are the most common COVID-19 symptoms. Aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, or diarrhea can be experienced by some patients. These signs and symptoms are typically mild and appear over time. Some people get infected but don’t have any signs or symptoms, and they don’t feel sick. The majority of people (roughly 80%) recover from the disease without requiring any special care.

      How does it spread ?

      When an infected person breathes, speaks, laughs, sings, coughs, or sneezes, droplets and virus particles are released into the air, according to researchers. Larger droplets may fall to the ground in a matter of seconds, but tiny infectious particles may remain in the air and accumulate in enclosed spaces, especially where a large number of people are gathered and ventilation is low. This is why mask-wearing, hand hygiene, and physical distancing are essential to preventing COVID-19.

      Covid-19 Variants in India

      According to researchers at the city-based Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, the rogue B.1.36 (N440K) strain of the novel coronavirus, which had dominated positive cases in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, has now given way to two more variants of concern (VoC) strain B.1.1.7 and double mutant B.1.617 (CCMB).

      What is Covid-19 incubation period ?

      Symptoms appear two to fourteen days after a person has been exposed to the virus. A person infected with the coronavirus is contagious to others for up to two days before symptoms appear, and they remain contagious to others for 10 to 20 days, depending upon their immune system and the severity of their illness.

      Who should get tested ?

      According to the recommendations, if you experience an acute onset of fever and signs of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, you should seek medical attention immediately. The doctor will determine whether you need to be checked for COVID-19 based on your history of travel to infected countries or interaction with any suspects.

      What are the documents needed for Testing?

      Mandatory documents defined by Govt. of India without which testing of COVID 19 is not allowed:
      1) Patient Information Form (Patient Proforma, to be provided by SRL Lab personnel and filled by the patient)
      2) Referring doctor’s prescription (requirement may vary depending upon mandate by the respective state government guidelines) and
      3) Govt. photo-id ( Aadhaar card/ Voter Id / Passport) to support the current address and contact number of the suspect patient to be provided at the time of sample collection.

      What does a positive anti-body test mean ?

      A positive antibody test is an indicator of the presence of antibodies from the aftermath of being infected either by the virus that causes COVID-19 or by a different virus from the same family of coronaviruses. In case of asymptomatic infection, it is possible to test positive for antibodies even if you have not observed symptoms of COVID-19. While a positive antibody test does imply immunity from contracting the infection again, the extent of this protection continues to remain obscure. Ensure to consult a doctor to help interpret the results of your antibody test.

      What types of samples are needed for Testing ?

      Swabs from the Nasopharyngeal and Oropharyngeal cavities will be obtained with care. RT-PCR, as recommended by ICMR to detect the presence of coronavirus in the body.

      An antibody test is also available when an unknown substance reaches the body, the immune system produces an antibody as a defense protein. It acts to rid the body of an unknown substance in order to keep it safe. The development of antibodies in the body indicates that the body has developed an immune response to the virus, according to the Antibody test. The procedure is performed on a sample of blood.

      What is the procedure for collecting and transporting samples ?

      The sample will be collected in a viral transport medium (VTM) to maintain the stability of the sample & get transported in a cold chain. Our specially trained phlebotomists collect the samples by following all biosafety precautions and using personal protective equipment.

      How are the reports shared with the customers ?

      All the reports are shared with designated government bodies, in accordance with the Government of India’s / ICMR / local state guidelines. Reports are send to the email address given to us at the time of sample collection as soon as they are ready. Our website, www.cytomol.in,  also has the reports available for download.
