The detection and identification of specific pathogen nucleic acids from individuals exhibiting signs and symptoms of respiratory infection aids in proper diagnosis. The Respiratory Pathogen Panel is used for the detection of the following respiratory viruses and bacterial pathogens: Influenza A Influenza A subtype H1 Influenza A subtype H3 Influenza B Human Parainfluenza Virus (HPIV) 1 Human Parainfluenza Virus (HPIV) 2 Human Parainfluenza Virus (HPIV) 3 Human Parainfluenza Virus (HPIV) 4 Rhinovirus/Enterovirus Human Metapneumovirus (HMPV) Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (HRSV) A Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (HRSV) B Adenovirus Coronavirus 229E Coronavirus OC43 Coronavirus NL63 Coronavirus HKU1 Human Bocavirus Chlamydophila pneumoniae Mycoplasma pneumoniae The results of this assay should be used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.

Swab must be sterile Dacron, nylon or rayon with plastic
shafts. Place swab in sterile viral transport media containing protein
stabilizer, antibiotics to inhibit bacterial fungal growth and buffer
solutions (e.g. UTM, V-C-M, M4, M4RT intended to transport chlamydia,
mycoplasma or viruses).
