Respiratory Pathogen Panel

Respiratory Pathogen Panel

Developed to broaden and streamline testing for multiple viral and bacterial agents of the upper respiratory tract.  Now practitioners and patients can benefit from the quickest and most accurate diagnosis possible.

Upper respiratory tract infections account for an estimated
10 million outpatient appointments a year.

PCR swiftly pinpoints the influenza virus, along with a number of other respiratory viruses and pneumonia causing bacteria.

  • One comprehensive panel provides rapid, accurate and simultaneous detection of multiple Bacterial, Viral and Fungal targets.
  • “Same Day” turn-around time on test results – results available the day the lab receives your specimens.
  • Identifies Antibiotic Resistance Markers
    – Contributes to improved Antibiotic Stewardship
  • Includes Enhanced Treatment Guidance*
    – Reduces treatment failures

Now you can provide patients with the quickest and most accurate diagnosis possible.

  • Virtually no “contaminated” results
  • Decreased progression of infection & reduced healthcare costs
  • Unmatched accuracy of PCR
  • Use for Rapid Flu test confirmation
  • Simple nasal swab collection

*Enhanced Treatment Guidance provides clinicians with CDC and FDA recommended multidrug resistant treatment options based on the presence of resistance makers detected by PCR.
