This ″SARS-CoV-2 Proficiency Testing Kit″ contains 5 samples ″SARS-CoV-2 Sample A″ through ″E″. Each of these tubes contain for the PCR testing relevant CDC and WHO consensus gene sequence regions in a range from 0 to 500′000 copies: RdRp, N (Nucleocapsid, CDC-N1, CDC-N2, CDC-N3, Thailand, Japan), E (Envelope), S (Spike). Levels and positive / negative assignments of the individual tubes are unknown.
Final reports for qualitative data will be issued within 48 hours. Quantitative reports will be issued after enough data points have been received to evaluate against a study mean.
