Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction and RT-PCR Set-Ups for SARS-CoV-2 Testing
The emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in China led to an increasing number of patients in the country infected with COVID-19. To prevent new infections in China once the number of cases fell, all nationals returning from other countries were tested. This process required rapid testing and automation of the sample preparation process. In order to meet these requirements, scientists have exploited automated pipetting solutions.
