Case Studies



Testing for SARS-CoV-2 is a major public health priority worldwide. A clinical metagenomic approach to SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis provides the ability to enable molecular epidemiological studies and provide insight into viral dynamics in patients. Further refinements will allow increased sensitivity, and potentially a more robust approach than RT-PCR based approaches.
