The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged clinical labs to explore ways to increase testing capacity in response to unprecedented demand. This has created a global shortage of viral RNA extraction kits, necessitating the search for alternative methods to meet testing needs. Here, we describe a novel set of reagents and protocols to support rapid viral testing via direct amplification without the need for viral RNA extraction.
