PANO - The Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) held a press conference to announce the results of producing the Real-Time Fluorescent RT-PCR test to detect the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

The real-time RT-PCR research was conducted by the Vietnam Military Medical University and the Viet A Technology Joint Stock Company.

The test kit is manufactured in liquid form to detect SARS-CoV-2 specimens in the upper respiratory tract (nasopharynx, nasopharyngeal fluid), lower respiratory tract (sputum, alveoli, fluid intubation, and pleural fluid), and blood sample.

The PANO would like to introduce some photos of the Medical Research Institute under the Military Medical Academy, where the Real-Time Fluorescent RT-PCR test kit detecting SARS-CoV-2 has been successfully produced.
