As the COVID-19 Pandemic continues across the globe, Jeff Galvin, CEO of American Gene Technologies (AGT), explains the measures AGT has taken to keep employees protected. AGT developed its own COVID-19 testing lab using high accuracy RT-PCR tests. These tests detect genes specific to COVID-19 by amplifying RNA, providing diagnostic results with as few as 10 copies of the virus per mL. This allows AGT to detect infected individuals early before they become contagious.
As capacity for the COVID lab increases in 2021, AGT has made its RT-PCR tests available to clinics across Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia. Responsible business practices at AGT keep the turnaround time low, so patients can expect results within 12 hours, providing reassurance that they can safely return to work, see family, or even travel.
