Feature Assay: Respiratory

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.

“Real-Time Syndromic Multiplex PCR is a robust diagnostic approach, enabling the rapid and accurate identification of life threatening pathogens. It provides the absolute solution to the everyday laboratory challenge “do more with less”, detecting all different types of pathogens highly efficiently, shortening the turnaround times to result, reducing complexity and cost while at the same time improves patients’ outcome with faster clinical decisions. Real-Time Syndromic Multiplex PCR is the diagnostic method of choice, particularly during the winter season, when laboratories are overwhelmed with respiratory samples."
