Additional Information

ESwab™ picture


Most people will develop an acute respiratory tract infection (RTI) every year. ¹ Children bear the brunt of RTI illness, with infants and pre-school children in developed countries experiencing a mean of 6-10 viral infections annually, and school-age children and adolescents experiencing 3-5 illnesses annually. ²

Often, antibiotics are prescribed, however, using antibiotics can cause resistance among respiratory pathogens in individuals and in recent years an epidemic increase in antibiotic-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae has been observed, prompting the need to decrease excess or inappropriate antibiotic use. ³

Multiplex Array simultaneously detects 21 viral and bacterial pathogens from the upper and lower respiratory tract. The array provides clinicians with a comprehensive infection profile for the patient enabling rapid and accurate diagnosis without the need for secondary or confirmatory testing to inform clinical treatment decisions. Identifying the infection correctly first time will reduce the misuse of antibiotics and improve their targeted use. Time to treatment is also reduced and unnecessary hospital stays are avoided.

Next Generation Multiplex Assay Platform for Respiratory Pathogen Detection

Watch this video to see how Luminex’s next generation NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel, a highly multiplexed assay platform, allows the user to test a single sample to detect up to 21 different pathogens all in a single well.

Why Test for Respiratory Pathogens?

Many commonly encountered respiratory pathogens (viral and bacterial) have similar clinical presentation, making diagnosis based on symptoms alone very difficult. Influenza viruses commonly cause respiratory illness, but many other pathogens may cause significant impact on patient health as well. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), as one example, is the most common cause of severe respiratory illness in young children, as well as a leading cause of death from respiratory illness in those aged 65 years and older.

A clinician needs to accurately detect the respiratory pathogen causing illness in the patient in order to effectively prescribe treatment and control the spread of infection. Laboratories need respiratory assays that can rapidly and efficiently detect these relevant pathogens with minimal hands-on time and no post-PCR handling to meet laboratory, physician, and patient needs.


Key Benefits

  • Simultaneously detects 21 bacterial and viral pathogens from the upper and lower respiratory tract
  • Enables identification of secondary or multiple infections
  • Rapid turnaround time of six hours
  • Reduced sample requirements and multiple sample types for patient comfort
  • May prevent the spread of infection and reduce antibiotic misuse
