To support local communities, CENTOGENE offers Coronavirus testing for the local population at its Headquarters in Rostock, Germany. This is an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test), which detects whether there is an acute infection with the virus, and thus the risk of infecting other people they come in contact with. The detection is carried out by means of a throat swab.
