Respiratory Panel

The Respiratory Panel (RP2)

The Film Array Respiratory Panel (RP2) tests for a comprehensive set of 21 respiratory viral and bacterial pathogens in about an hour. The Respiratory Panel identifies the most common viral and bacterial pathogens that cause respiratory tract infections that present with nearly indistinguishable symptoms. The rapid and accurate identification of the causative agent helps determine how a healthcare provider chooses to treat an upper respiratory infection
