Feature Assay: Respiratory

Respiratory

Respiratory infections have recently become a greater burden on Middle Eastern countries1, with more influenza outbreaks forecasted over the next few years.2 Given that many pathogens have a similar clinical presentation, how can clinicians differentiate between them quickly and cost-effectively?

Boost your laboratory efficiency with the most comprehensive syndromic testing menu for respiratory pathogens! Covering 23 viruses, 14 bacteria, and 1 fungus, Siemens Healthineers’ FTD kits can be easily adapted to your existing molecular diagnostics instrumentation. Multiplex your assays and detect multiple pathogens at the same time, from a single clinical specimen – for a fraction of the price!3

“Thanks to FTlyo FLU/HRSV, laboratories increase their efficiency by simultaneously detecting three significant pathogens during the Middle-East spring season. FTlyo multiplex kits help us reduce our turnaround time and cross-contamination. They provide fast and accurate results for testing of multiple pathogens at the same time.”
