TrueMark Respiratory Panel 2.0

Target even more respiratory pathogens at once—now including SARS-CoV-2

Upper and lower respiratory tract infections are caused by a broad range of microbes, including RNA and DNA viruses, bacteria, and even fungi, and yet are often symptomatically similar. Detection of these pathogens can be challenging; immunoassays provide limited answers, and culture based methods are prone to contamination and can miss bacterial and fungal pathogens owing to fastidious growth in culture. Co-infections are a growing concern that require broad and effective pathogen detection.

While molecular testing is more sensitive, most commercially available tests are expensive and primarily focus on either viruses or bacteria. The Applied Biosystems TrueMark Respiratory Panel 2.0 is a sensitive, syndromic panel–based real-time PCR solution for the detection of respiratory pathogens.

Now with SARS-CoV-2 targets, the TrueMark Respiratory Panel 2.0, features the most pathogenic organism targets of any test on the market at the lowest cost per sample to help you identify key respiratory infections and study SARS‑CoV‑2 co-infections quickly and cost-effectively.

Features of this solution include:

  • Extensive coverage including SARS-CoV-2 targets—our solution features the largest number respiratory pathogen targets of any test on the market
  • Cost-effective—lowest cost per sample when compared with other commercially available molecular solutions
  • Multiple sample input types—including nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), and nasal aspirate
  • Flexible, scalable formats—choose from our TaqMan array card (TAC) format or our OpenArray (OA) plate format
