About the MiraDx Test
To collect a small sample of an individual’s DNA and RNA, to detect if the person has COVID-19 virus
Test is very sensitive and can detect as little as 1 copy of coronavirus RNA in a patient’s sample.
Uses PCR technology to measure the virus itself, which means it is both much more sensitive in its ability to pick up early infections, as well as informative in indicating when an individual who may have been infected is no longer contagious.
The throat sample is collected under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
The test kit includes an air-tight vial, collection swab, and a biohazard bag, with simple instructions for collecting the sample needed for testing.
