We are utilizing Real-Time PCR to analyze the RNA and DNA of pathogens to precisely detect viral and bacterial infections. Molecular Diagnostics allows for an expedited diagnosis of the correct pathogen(s) and identification of drug resistance, which allows the provider to prescribe timely and effective treatment. The Respiratory Pathogen Panel testing detects the following pathogens:

Viral Targets: Influenza A, Influenza A H1, Influenza A H3, Influenza B, Respiratory Syncytial Virus A (RSV A), Respiratory Syncytial Virus B (RSV B), Parainfluenza 1, Parainfluenza 2, Parainfluenza 3, Parainfluenza 4, Human Bocavirus, Human Metapneumovirus (hMPV), Human Rhinovirus / Enterovirus, Adenovirus, Coronavirus HKU1, Coronavirus NL63, Coronavirus OC43, Coronavirus 229E, Bacterial Targets, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae
