During this time of crisis, healthcare providers and researchers around the world are racing to develop SARS-CoV-2 testing methods. Testing strategies include PCR to diagnose active infection (by testing for the presence of viral genetic material) and the use of antibody test kits on blood (also known as serological tests), in order to track exposure and possible immunity in the population (1,2,3). With these diagnostic tools, the scientific community aims to get a better understanding of the scale and trajectory of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
