    This Fact Sheet informs you of the significant known and potential risks and benefits of the emergency use of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.

    Testing is to be conducted on specimens from people who meet CDC criteria for 2019-nCoV testing, available at CDC’s webpage, Information for Healthcare Professionals (see links provided in “Where can I go for updates and more information” section). The CDC 2019- nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel should be ordered only to presumptively detect 2019-nCoV infection.

All information and guidance, including for 2019-nCoV laboratory testing, may change as more data is gathered on this virus. Please check the CDC’s 2019 Novel Coronavirus, webpage (see links provided in “Where can I go for updates and more information” section) regularly for the most current information.

    This test is to be performed only using respiratory specimens collected from individuals who meet CDC criteria for 2019-nCoV testing.
