Abstract

The new coronavirus — SARS-CoV-2 infections have recently become the main epidemiological and clinical challenge worldwide (Poland included). This article is based on the presentation entitled “Hematology and transfusion medicine and COVID-19” given/conferred during the webinar in May 2020. The aim was to introduce the procedure for diagnosing the new coronavirus infection. The procedure highlights the aspects of the pre-analytical and analytical phase that are critical for the quality of the performed tests and affected by both the commissioning and test-performing personnel. On the basis of current literature, further recommendations for the improvement of molecular diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2 are also presented.
