Aptima® SARS-CoV-2/Flu Assay
The Performance & Flexibility you Need
Accurate and fully automated testing is critical in the fight against the threat of SARS-CoV-2. This is key to quickly identifying who’s infected and subsequently helping alleviate the spread of this virus. The assay is used for the qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A virus and influenza B virus from individuals suspected of respiratory viral infection consistent with COVID-19.1
Meet any urgent need for high-throughput and fully-automated testing, delivering more than 1000 test results in 24 hours.*,2
Detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and influenzas A and B during respiratory season to guide patient management.1
The assays can be run alongside current infectious disease, women’s health and virology assays, enabling laboratories to unlock the free capacity on their existing Panther Systems.
Simplify & Scale the Future of Diagnostics
Excellent Clinical Performance
Evaluated in comparison to the Aptima SARS-CoV-2 Assay and the Panther Fusion Flu A/B/RSV assay, using a panel of remnant clinical nasopharyngeal specimens collected from patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection.
