Respiratory Pathogen Profile
When your patients present with symptoms of a respiratory pathogen, you need fast, accurate, and precise analysis so you can prescribe the proper treatment. That’s why LifeBrite Labs offers the gold standard of respiratory testing and guaranteeing results within 24-48 hours.
With a single nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) sample, we test for a comprehensive set of 21 pathogens commonly associated with respiratory infections. Results are often available the same day, so you can give your patients the right treatment, right away.
Testing remains an important epidemiological tool for disease experts. Even though the threat of an uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 appears to be decreasing, routine testing provides a surveillance method where researchers can gain insight into how and why isolated outbreaks occur within specific communities. Routine testing allows scientists to take an even closer look at how disease variants are spreading.
Advantages to the LifeBrite Respiratory Pathogen Profile Include:
Accurate Organism Identification
The real time 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
Results are routinely available to clinicians on the same day of receipt.
The NPS in transport medium is simple to handle. The PCR format minimizes sample requirements, increasing efficiency and potentially decreasing testing cost. A single specimen can be tested for multiple infectious agents simultaneously.
