Our expertise and established facilities to perform RT-qPCR tests, high-throughput genome sequencing, and analyze 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. 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 are using a diagnostic validated in vitro diagnostic (IVD) kit with an analytical sensitivity of ≥10 RNA copies per reaction for ORF1ab and N genes and analytical specificity ≥99.9%.
The Bio Arte Limited is licensed as a Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (number HCS/L/10) by the Maltese Government, and ISO 9001:2015 certified for the processes involving the Medical Diagnostic Laboratory to Research and Development projects against third parties (certificate number THEB3147Q2001). 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.
