PCR Covid test

In order to waive the hotel quarantine period, the Canadian government currently requires full-vaccination and a specific kind of covid test. This does not include the antigen test.

These tests are considered acceptable molecular tests:

PCR - Polymerase chain reaction
RT-PCR – reverse transcription real time PCR
Quantitative PCR (qPCR)
Nucleic acid test (NAT) or Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs)
Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP)
Isothermal amplification
Droplet digital PCR or digital droplet PCR (ddPCR)
Transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)
RNA (Ribonucleic acid)
Ct (cycle threshold)
CRISPR
Sequencing
Next generational sequencing (NGS) or whole genome sequencing (WGS)
Oxford Nanopore sequencing (LamPORE)
Detection of the N gene
Detection of Orf1a/b
Detection of the S gene
Detection of the E gene
Detection of the RdRp gene

It looks like the acceptable PVR test is available at this one on Rob’s list.

Others might provide PCR, but don’t list them on their web presence.
