PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), which is widely known due to the coronavirus pandemic, is a test applied in medical and biological research. This test detects the virus in the body and the body’s reaction is evaluated. PCR test has a very important role in detecting asymptomatic disease carriers and symptomatic patients and in reducing the spread of the virus during the pandemic and it can enable investigating large numbers of short DNA and RNA copies taken from a small clinical sample.
PCR tests are not performed through blood, but through the swabs taken from the nose and throat by a thin cotton rod. It is very important to take the swabs properly to reach accurate results.
