The infectious disease COVID-19 occurs as a result of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Most often, COVID-19 proceeds with signs of acute respiratory viral infections (fever, cough, body aches), loss of smell, nausea, and shortness of breath is possible, however, in a large percentage of infected people, the disease is asymptomatic.
The cause of the development of COVID-19 infection was the RNA-containing coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The main recommended method of laboratory diagnostics confirming this disease is the determination of the RNA of the virus in a smear from the mucous membrane of the nasopharynx and / or oropharynx by polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
Now you can donate biomaterial for research on coronavirus infection COVID-19 at Invitro. Non-contact analysis is a simple and painless procedure for taking a smear for research, which, if carried out correctly according to the instructions, allows you to obtain biomaterial for laboratory testing on your own.
The study is carried out in the laboratory by the polymerase chain reaction method in real time. This method allows you to determine the genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
After the virus enters the body, the human immune system begins to produce antibodies specific to this virus (Ig - immunoglobulins) - an important factor in protecting the immune system from infection. The detection of antibodies of different classes in the blood is informative evidence of the current or past infectious process and helps to identify the stage of development of the infection. More often, the level of antibodies of class M (IgM) and G (IgG) is determined in the blood.
