Empowering Labs with Targeted and Syndromic Testing

Respiratory Infection Portfolio


For respiratory infection testing, clinical labs must adapt quickly to changing needs based on seasonal demand, as well as patient age and overall health. With significant overlap of symptoms across infections and an evolving reimbursement landscape, labs must have flexibility in assays to deliver high-quality, cost-effective results.


Whether you need high-volume influenza assays or a broad selection of targets, we can help.
