PCR-LAMP for COVID-19:
1-hour molecular biology test
HiLab’s PCR-LAMP is the fastest molecular biology remote analysis test for COVID-19. It uses a widely known technique – RT-LAMP -, which allows you to detect infectious diseases safely and in less time than with common tests.
What is a Remote Lab Test?
A remote Lab Test (RLT) is an exam that can be performed outside of a clinical analysis lab.
The HiLab PCR-LAMP RLT uses the RT-LAMP technique of loop-mediated isothermal amplification. Its differential is to offer a double-checked report by an artificial intelligence and by a specialist from our lab.
Single Molecular Biology text ready within 1 hour
The result of the PCR-LAMP HiLab test comes out in just 1 hour, making it ideal for rapid testing in clinics, pharmacies, hospitals, and other places.
Ideal for the early-stage infection, with a wide detection window
From the 3rd to the 15th day after exposure or from the 1st to the 10th day after symptoms onset
Analogous technique to RT-PCR
Faster testing does not require expensive inputs and equipment, unlike RT-PCR. Like the RT-PCR test, it has high levels of sensitivity and specificity.

Indications and specifications of the PCR-LAMP test for COVID-19
The PCR-LAMP RLT uses the loop-mediated isothermal amplification technique - RT-LAMP to detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA.
The PCR-LAMP HiLab test is confirmatory and has a wide window of detection that is ideal for identifying infected people, including asymptomatic ones. Its performance is indicated from the 3rd to the 15th day after exposure or from the 1st to the 10th day after the onset of symptoms.
Detected analytes: SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA.
Method: Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP).
Sample Type: Nasopharyngeal secretion.
Total exam time: Up to 1 hour.
How to interpret the HiLab PCR-LAMP test result for COVID-19
Possible absence of coronavirus infection. However, false negatives are possible, especially if the sample was collected at a very early or late stage of infection.
Possible coronavirus infection. The result indicates that the genetic material of the virus was detected in the analyzed sample.
Important: In both cases, the patient must contact the physician to assess the diagnostic approach.
Discover our other solutions for COVID-19
In addition to the molecular biology exam, HiLab also offers other solutions for fast diagnosis of the infection: the IgM and IgG RLT - which detects antibodies - and the Antigen RLT - which detects viral proteins.
