NextGen RT-PCR Panel
Overview
NextGen Laboratories advanced molecular diagnostic test panels empower clinicians to make decisions based on highly accurate and rapid identification of pathogens through DNA analysis of multiple pathogens at the same time. Because infections present with similar signs and symptoms, NextGen Labs infectious disease syndromic test panels help limit testing to the most common pathogens associated with a clinical syndrome by grouping probable pathogenic causes into one simple test. Rapid and highly accurate identification of the likely cause of Infection in one sample and one test streamlines the process and reduces the waiting period.
Respiratory Panel
The NextGen Respiratory panel tests for over twenty upper respiratory viral and bacterial pathogens commonly associated with respiratory infections, many of which present with nearly indistinguishable symptoms. The rapid and accurate (95%+ sensitivity and specificity) identification of the most common bacterial or viral pathogens causing infections empowers healthcare providers to provide targeted treatment and avoid prescribing antibiotics for viral infections.
Gastrointestinal Panel
The NextGen Gastrointestinal (GI) Panel tests for a comprehensive set of twenty-two gastrointestinal pathogens associated with gastroenteritis and infection, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Rapid identification through a simple stool swab can identify many of the pathogens that are often missed with traditional methods.
