Respiratory Pathogens Test

​The Pathnostics Respiratory Pathogens Test is a highly specific and sensitive multiplex PCR for the nucleic acid detection of SARS-Cov-2, Influenza A, Influenza B, or respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Using one nasal swab, our Respiratory Pathogens Test will help providers diagnose patients and give appropriate therapy options.​

Co-Infection Between SARS-CoV-2 and Other Respiratory Pathogens

Like other common respiratory tract infections, Influenza and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, share similar signs and symptoms. Additionally, co-infection with SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory viruses, including influenza and RSV, has been described. It is estimated that SARS-CoV-2 co-infections may occur in 20.7% of patients.1

Pathnostics offers a PCR test for multiple infections, including:

  • COVID 19
  • RSV

While rapid antigen tests may deliver results faster, molecular tests have significantly higher sensitivity and specificity
