We are pleased to inform you that starting from 29.10.2018, the following new analysis is available in the Avicena Laboratory:
RESPIRATORY PANEL FOR SIMULTANEOUS DETECTION OF 33 RESPIRATORY PATHOGENS WITH MULTIPLEX REAL-TIME PCR
Respiratory infections are one of the most common infections in everyday practice. In many cases, it is difficult to recognize and identify the exact cause of a respiratory infection, especially when it comes to mixed infections.
With the help of this respiratory panel, from just one sample, exact genetic sequences from the below-mentioned causes are recognized. In addition, this is a highly sensitive molecular Real-Time PCR method, which is superior to other methods and techniques.
The test can be made immediately in the acute phase of the disease and antibiotic or any other therapy does not affect the result.
The panel includes the following causes of respiratory infections:
Influenza A virus, Influenza B virus, Influenza A(H1N1) swl virus, influenza C virus
Human Coronavirus NL63, Human Coronavirus 229E, Human Coronavirus OC43, Human Coronavirus HKU1
Human Parainfluenza 1, 2, 3, 4
Human Metapneumoviruses A/B
Human Respiratory Syncytial Viruses A/B
Haemophilus influenzae B
Legionella pneumophila/ longbeachae
Bordetella spp. (not Bordetella parapertussis)
Required specimen: throat / nose swab, spatula, bronchoalveolar lavat
Method: Multiplex Real-Time PCR
Promotional price for the test: 3.900,00 den.
