Using Digital PCR for Optimization of SARS-CoV-2 RNA Extraction Protocol

RNA extraction is a critical step in COVID-19 molecular testing. The loss of viral RNA during the extraction step can result in false negatives. Therefore, optimization of the RNA extraction protocol to ensure consistent and high yield recovery of viral RNA could potentially improve COVID-19 testing accuracy.
