Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) remains a gold standard in detection of various viral diseases. In the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple RT-PCR based tests were developed to screen for viral infection. As an emergency response to growing testing demand, we established a SARS-CoV-2 PCR diagnostics platform for which we compared different commercial and in-house RT-PCR protocols. Four commercial (CDC 2019-nCoV, Applied BiosystemsTM 2019-nCoV Assay Kit v1 TF-SinglePlex, 2019-nCoV Assay Kit v2 TF-MultiPlex, and EURORealTime SARS-CoV-2), one customized (Institute Pasteur), and one in-house RT-PCR protocols were evaluated with 92 SARS-CoV-...
