Real Time PCR Test

The A1C test is a blood test that provides information about the average level of glucose in a person's blood over the past 3 months. The A1C test is also called hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, or glycosylated hemoglobin and is primary test for diabetes management and control of diabetes. This test is done to detect type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Polymerase Chain reaction (PCR) is a Molecular technology, which directly detects virus, bacteria & other genetics used to amplify lower amounts DNA/RNA of the target directly from the sample and generate large quantities of those nucleic acids.

  1. Real time PCR is used for detection and quantification of  DNA/RNA of the target in patients specimens.

  2. It also detects mutation and genotype.


Real-time PCR - has several advantages over other techniques which include :

  • Higher sensitivity & specificity.

  • No cross reactivity.

  • Rapidity compared to culture methods.

  • Early diagnosis of acute infection.

  • Differentiating between active and inactive disease states in chronic HBV infection.

  • Simultaneous processing of large numbers of samples and faster reporting.

At Sampurna Sodani Diagnostic Clinic, we have a well-equipped Molecular Biology Laboratory that does real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing using both open PCR and the Truenat method.
