The BioArte PCR test

We are using a diagnostic validated IVD kit with an analytical sensitivity of ≥10 RNA copies per reaction for ORF1ab and N genes and analytical specificity ≥99.9%.

We routinely quantify SARS-CoV-2 RNA with RT-qPCR tests from around 600 samples on average per week. We were also the first to sequence the genome of SARS-CoV-2 viral strains in Malta (Biazzo et al. 2021 ).

We adhere to high-quality management standards and Good Laboratory Practice. Furthermore, The BioArte participated in the international quality control program “QCMD 2021 EQA Programme (SCV2_21)” for the molecular testing of SARS-CoV-2, passing the interlaboratory comparison with the highest score. Our expertise and established facilities to perform RT-qPCR tests, high-throughput genome sequencing, and analyse the data, together with our experience in working with a variety of human and environmental samples make The BioArte the optimal choice for your Covid19 certificates and tests.
