The collected sample is sequenced to determine whether the viral strand present in the host matches with the Delta variant. Not too different from a paternity test.

Do you have a source I can read concerning this process? I have found it difficult to find any reliable ones online.

the short answer: no normal tests can tell if what you have is the delta variant or normal (or any variant). they test for covid infections. however, labs will sequence a statistically significant number of infections to see if the virus has the delta variant qualities, and use that as a representation of the percentage of cases that are deltas. that’s how we know the delta variant is generally the rising/dominant strand these days.
