    Respiratory Testing & Patient Specific Results

    Respiratory viruses are responsible for a wide range of acute respiratory tract infections including the common cold, influenza, and croup and represent a common cause of acute illness. Disease severity can be especially high in the young, the immunocompromised, and elderly patients.1

    Increase Efficiency & Reduce Costs

    Accurate and timely diagnosis of the cause of respiratory tract infections has a number of benefits for patients and their communities.

    Reduces Complications

    Helps reduce the potential for further development of antimicrobial resistance due to antibiotics.1,2

    Patient Care First

    Improves patient care and helps decrease costs.1-3

    Results with Purpose

    Provides valued information to public health authorities regarding which viruses are circulating in the community.1,4

    Helps Minimise Spread

    Assists infection control personnel to provide appropriate measures to minimise nosocomial spread.1,5
