Coronavirus PCR testing

Carpegen GmbH is specializing in development and application of sensitive and specific PCR tests according to high quality standards. With the onset of the Corona crisis, we offered PCR diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of the respiratory disease COVID-19, in our laboratory in Münster.

Carpegen was assigned by the local health authority of Münster according to Section 6 Paragraph 1 No. 2 of the Coronavirus Test Directive (TestV) to support the City of Münster and the federal test strategy with the implementation of services in accordance with Section 1 Paragraph 1 of the Coronavirus Test Directive (TestV ).

For this purpose, we have cooperated with a number of test centers that have performed sample collection for PCR diagnostics and organized sample transport to our laboratory.

Due to low demand, Corona PCR testing has been temporarily discontinued as of December 01, 2022.

In the event of a potential resurgence of infections and a related increase in demand for PCR testing, Carpegen will reintroduce SARS-CoV-2 PCR analysis into its service portfolio at short notice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and cooperation partners for the trust they have placed in us!
