Receiving a false positive or a false negative result on a COVID-19 test is confusing and leads to critical delays in treatment. RT-PCR is the gold standard for COVID-19 testing, but RT-PCR reagents easily become contaminated by other biological materials during handling. Ultraviolet C (UVC) light offers a chemical-free, effective solution to ensure the purity of RT-PCR test kits.
