SpeeDx PlexPCR® Respivirus

PlexPCR® RespiVirus is a 2-well multiplex real-time RT-PCR assay for the detection of Influenza A (FluA), Influenza B (FluB), Rhinoviruses (RhV), Respiratory Syncytial Viruses A and B (RSV A and B), Human metapneumovirus (HMPV), Adenoviruses B and C (AdV B and C) and Human parainfluenza viruses 1, 2, 3 and 4 (HPIV 1-4).

Why use PlexPCR® RespiVirus?

Laboratories face increasing numbers of respiratory samples for testing each year as greater pressure is placed on clinicians to determine the cause of infection before prescribing antibiotics. PlexPCR® RespiVirus helps to maintain relevant turn-around times even during peak testing season and ensures timely reporting of results to optimize treatment decisions for patient management.

Tested on hundreds of clinical and QAP samples, PlexPCR® RespiVirus demonstrates excellent sensitivity and specificity.
