Prepare for a Challenging Flu Season with Fast, Multiplex Respiratory Testing

Find Out How One Lab Delivers Fast Respiratory
Results for Senior Care Populations

Too often, doctors ordering tests and patients worried about their health have to wait for clinical results. These delays can significantly impact a patient’s outcome, depriving doctors of the information they need to make the best therapeutic decisions for their patients.

A patient could have the flu, a bacterial infection, or may even have been exposed to COVID-19. How can labs get the results that doctors and patients need for effective treatment?

According to Steve Hoover, President of Lab Operations at Mako Medical, “We believe in syndromic testing because we don’t have to spend a lot of time diagnosing a patient who might not have a lot of time to get that diagnosis.” 

While the team at Mako Medical described their experience with the QIAstat-Dx Respiratory Panel, you can expect a similar experience with the QIAstat-Dx Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Panel, which provides results for 21 respiratory targets in about an hour. With this single-step syndromic test, your lab can prepare for the increased demand this flu season could bring.

A recent study has detailed the rates of co-infection in COVID-19 patients, highlighting the importance of multiplex testing for accurate diagnosis.
