Take caution when mapping LOINC codes to molecular tests for SARS coronaviruses that target nucleic acids within the E gene. Such assays detect either SARS-related coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2, depending on the targeted region within the E gene. Assays that are non-specific to only SARS-CoV-2 may say they are "positive" for SARS-CoV-2, but only because it is the primary circulating virus during the pandemic. These assays actually detect any SARS-related coronaviruses since they target a region in the E gene that contains sequence homology to other known coronaviruses. Other assays target a region in the E gene that is specific for SARS-CoV-2. The LIVD file contains current LOINC code mappings to many IVD tests [https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/sars-cov-2-livd-codes.html]. You may also contact the manufacturer directly to verify LOINC code mappings. Coronavirus (COVID-19) Testing
