Robert Witkowski taps treated saliva samples for ease of pipetting the samples to the PCR plate for the actual testing. Once the virus has been killed in the pipetting lab, the samples are transferred to the PCR plate for testing. The PCR workstations are not vented since the virus is dead but are enclosed so no DNA contamination occurs. Saliva-based diagnostic testing program is managed by the university through lab space in the Veterinary Diagnostic Center. January 20, 2021. Photo by Craig Chandler / University Communication.
