Our Vision for Pathogen Detection

Our vision is to provide physicians with the ability to rapidly and accurately identify disease causing pathogens in the clinic by placing molecular assays directly in clinical labs where patients are seen.

Currently, we are focusing on the most common pathogens which account for the most common illnesses patients have. These developed assays change frequently as our infectious disease team diligently perform pathogen literature reviews, bioinformatics, in silico testing, and assay development.

What is RPP Testing?

Respiratory Pathogen (RPP) Testing is a comprehensive assay that detects multiple respiratory pathogens simultaneously in a closed-tube, easy-to-use system.

Why you should consider RPP Testing?

A RPP test pinpoints the influenza virus and a number of respiratory viruses and/or bacteria so your physician can treat it swiftly and accurately. Therefore, testing can reduce the severity and illness timeframe, as well as reducing overall medical costs for patients. Diagnosis through RPP testing is crucial because identifying the type of respiratory pathogen is key when it comes to proper and effective treatment protocols.
