Respiratory Pathogen Profile

LifeBrite Respiratory Panel features same day delivery of test results, increasing diagnostic efficiency and decreasing cost

The Respiratory Pathogen Profile (RPP)

LifeBrite Laboratories is pleased to announce the addition of the FilmArray® Respiratory Panel 2 (RP2)

The LifeBrite RPP tests nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) specimens for a comprehensive set of 21 respiratory pathogens commonly associated with respiratory infections. Quickly identifying pathogens facilitates appropriate treatment and patient management decisions.

Just in time for flu season, the new LifeBrite Respiratory Panel is a comprehensive testing solution to help clinicians identify respiratory pathogens, often within the same day of receipt, so healthcare organizations can diagnose patients more quickly to better facilitate appropriate treatment and patient management decisions.


Advantages to ordering the LifeBrite Respiratory Pathogen Profile:

  • Better Results – BioFire’s syndromic approach increases the probability of identifying a pathogen in patients with symptoms of an infectious disease and increases capability of detection of co-infections.
  • Accurate Organism Identification – The FilmArray® System’s PCR technology for detection of bacteria and viruses offers increased sensitivity and specificity over traditional methods, particularly for viruses and difficult-to-culture organisms.
  • Rapid Test Runtime – The results are routinely available to clinicians on the same day of receipt.
  • Specimen Requirements – NPS in transport medium. The PCR format minimizes sample requirements increasing efficiency and potentially decreasing testing cost. A single specimen can be tested for multiple infectious agents simultaneously.
