Clinically Relevant Targets, Better ResultsSyndromic Testing for Infectious Diseases 

Syndromic testing allows clinicians to rapidly test for a broad number of pathogens in patients that present with overlapping signs and symptoms. Siemens Healthineers offers real-time PCR multiplex assays for infectious disease testing with pathogens grouped according to clinical relevance to syndromes such as respiratory infections, gastroenteritis, childhood infections, and meningitis.

These real-time PCR multiplex kits, grouped according to clinical syndromes, serve an important clinical need. With this approach physicians can order a single test from the lab covering multiple probable pathogenic causes—virus, bacteria or parasite. Syndromic testing can save time, resources, reagents, and be more cost-effective while providing a fast and accurate clinical diagnosis for the physician who must make treatment decisions for the patient.

  • Real-time PCR multiplex kits for infectious disease detection based on syndromic testing
  • Comprehensive diagnostic approach to a clinical syndrome
  • Faster diagnosis with better informed therapeutic decisions
  • Cost-effective testing strategy

  • Single multiplex real-time PCR kit for multiple targets that are grouped according to syndrome
  • Saves the laboratory time, resources, reagents, and budget 

  • Clinically relevant testing for appropriately grouped targets based on a patient’s signs and symptoms
  • Improved patient outcomes due to a faster clinical diagnosis and appropriate treatment decisions
