Pooling strategy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic: A solution for mass population screening of SARS-CoV-2
In a report in the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics researchers at Augusta University and PerkinElmer Genomics describe a cheaper, rapid, and accurate pooling strategy for the RT-PCR-based detection of SARS-CoV-2 in clinical samples. This assay has a significant impact on large-scale population screening in the wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
