Royal GD contributes to increasing testing capacity for COVID-19

5-11-2020: 

The Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has announced that GD will also be testing human samples for the presence of the corona virus SARS-CoV-2. The test for the COVID-19 study has been validated in our own laboratory in Deventer.

Knowledge and experience
For the COVID-19 study, nose and/or throat swabs are collected from the patient. We examine these samples using PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests. This method allows the genetic material of the virus to be detected. We have a large diagnostic laboratory with a PCR department, where tens of thousands of samples are tested annually. Our employees have extensive experience in PCR research into viral infections and infections with other pathogens.

For the COVID-19 diagnostics, we expect to be able to perform up to 2000 tests per day. In our laboratory we are set up for large numbers.
