Respiratory Pathogen Panel

GenMark’s ePlex Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RP) detects and identifies the most common viral and bacterial organisms associated with upper respiratory infection.

RP Panel

>20 common respiratory pathogens

Validated clinical performance

Rapid, accurate, actionable results

Improve patient outcome

Reduce the cost of care

Influenza is often the first pathogen that comes to mind with a respiratory infection, but many other virus and bacteria have a similar clinical presentation.

Comprehensive detection of the most common viral and bacterial pathogens ensures that each patient is given the most appropriate treatment quicker.

Due to the simplicity of the ePlex system it lends itself perfectly to point of care settings with only 2 minutes hands on time per sample.

Implementing ePlex Can:

Reduce the time the patient spends in ED or ICU waiting for a result
Optimise bed management with faster admission and discharge of patients based on results
Initiate targeted therapy quicker and reduce unnecessary use of antibiotics for viral infections
Streamline isolation protocols to prevent the spread of infection
Reduce confirmatory testing to identify the cause of infection
