June 12, 2020 by Austin McDaniel What kind of tests are accepted? Alaska accepts only molecular-based tests such as the PCR tests – antibody/serology tests are not accepted. Alaska accepts results from FDA-approved home self-test swab kits. A molecular-based SARS-CoV2 test is any of a number of tests that detect the presence of viral RNA (genes), such as reverse transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (rt-PCR, e.g. Cepheid GeneXpert, KIngFisher System, ABI 7500 system), Transcription Mediated Amplification (TMA, e.g. the Hologic Panther system), and Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification (e.g. Abbott ID-NOW).
