ISO/AWI TS 5798, an international standard proposed by BGI in conjunction with the Chinese Institute of Standardization
“Quality Specification for the Detection of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by Nucleic Acid Amplification”
has been tested and in vitro diagnosed by the International Organization for Standardization Medical Laboratory.
The Technical Committee of Broken Systems voted and formally established the project.
It is reported that this international standard is the only international standard specifically for COVID-19 testing established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
