About this Testing

Respiratory Infections

This test is a multiplex (PCR) test designed to detect DNA or RNA of more than 16 pathogens (bacteria and viruses) using nasal swab specimen sample for the critically ill, exposed to high risk virally infected or possibly infected population as well as severely immunocompromised individuals. The Test may diagnose infections caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), human metapneumovirus, human rhinovirus/enterovirus, influenza A (H1, H1-2009, H3), influenza B, parainfluenza (1, 2, 3, 4), respiratory syncytial virus, Bordetella pertussis, Bordetella parapertussis, Chlamydia pneumoniae, adenovirus, coronavirus (HKU1, NL63, 229E, OC43), and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
