Respiratory Pathogen Detection

Fast & Comprehensive Testing

FDA-cleared respiratory panel provides an overall sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 99%. Rapid and accurate diagnostic testing for respiratory pathogens help identify which patients to isolate and determine antibiotic or antiviral therapy.

Each year in the US, 2 million people acquire serious bacterial infections that are resistant to one or more prescribed antibiotics, and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these antibiotic resistant infections.8 An estimated 55% of antibiotic prescriptions for Acute Respiratory Tract Infections are unnecessary.9 The misuse of antibiotics costs the US healthcare system over $20 billion each year.10

Implications of Antibiotic Resistance
  • Increases mortality and morbidity from untreatable diseases.
  • Increases risk of global spread of pathogens.
  • Results in longer, more frequent hospital stays.
  • Limits drug options at a time when pharmaceutical companies are developing fewer new antimicrobials.
  • Increases cost of research for new drugs.
