Respiratory and Gastrointestinal Panels

Respiratory and Gastrointestinal Panels

Indication

Suspicion of respiratory tract infections/infectious gastroenteritis/encephalitis 

Benefit

Possibility to detect multiple infectious agents in one assay using only one sample. Multiplex technology allows a large number of tests to be conducted simultaneously and analyzed quickly, cost-effectively and accurately.

Material

Nasopharyngeal swab (dry swab) / 5g Stool / 2ml CSF

Method

Multiplex technology
