LABORATORY METHODS FOR DETERMINING NEW COVID-19 INFECTION
The massive and rapid spread of the disease has led to the spread of the new coronavirus becoming a pandemic. The main tasks of specialists in the field of diagnostics and treatment were the creation and use of tests with maximum sensitivity and specificity for reliable interpretation of the results in conditions of limited information about epidemiology, clinical features, prevention and treatment of the disease. Today, these are two areas: the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 antigen, capable of establishing the presence of the components of the virus itself, the determination of antibodies produced by the body's immune system in response to the invasion of the coronavirus.
