Molecular diagnostic solutions for respiratory infection testing

Prompt and early diagnosis of respiratory pathogens that cause severe illness is critical to help inform patient management, treatment decisions, and preventing the spread of disease.  Confidence in testing results allows clinicians and patients to make informed decisions—including seeking medical care and/or avoiding contact with other people. While many testing options are available for respiratory testing, molecular techniques including PCR-based tests are designed to enable early virus detection, even in asymptomatic cases, and help deliver reliable answers.
