Highlights

This test is a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test capable of qualitatively detecting DNA or RNA of 22 pathogens (bacteria and viruses) in approximately 1 hour using nasopharyngeal swab specimens.

 

This test may diagnose infections caused by adenovirus, coronavirus (HKU1, NL63, 229E, OC43), 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, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
