Reference Value:
Negative
 
Interpretation:
  1. Appropriate specimen collection, transport, storage and processing procedures are required for the optimal performance of this test.
  2. The presence of RT-PCR inhibitors (e.g. heparin) may cause false negative or invalid results.
  3. Potential mutations within the target regions of the MERS-CoV genome covered by the primers and/or probes used in the kit may result in failure to detect the presence of the pathogen.
  4. As with any diagnostic test, the test results need to be interpreted in consideration of all clinical and laboratory findings
