About NPC

 

Founded in March 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Pandemic Centre exclusively performed over 600,000 PCR-based analyses (not serological / antibody-based) of Covid-19 samples (see details below). NPC has since ceased operations of high throughput PCR diagnostics on 2020-12-21.

In addition to the PCR-based analysis, the National Pandemic Centre commenced the high-throughput genetic sequencing of different variants of SARS-CoV-2 during the autumn of 2020. Today, whole genome sequencing of the virus is the primary objective for the center.  NPC works closely with 16 different regions in Sweden and the Public Health Agency (Folkhälsomyndigheten) to assist in the National task and strategy for increased surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 variants.
