QIAsphere Insights

Your compass for disease incidence and prevalence

Confidently navigate the ebb and flow of infectious diseases in your community – and beyond – with QIAsphere Insights. With data from your own QIAstat-Dx instruments and de-identified data from instruments around the world, track everything from pathogen diversity, to rates of co-detection, to Ct value measures. With QIAsphere Insights, the power of clinical epidemiology is in your hands.
Could you be underdiagnosing respiratory infections?
If you're solely relying on low-plex testing, our data suggests you could be missing crucial information. Download our recent study to learn more.
  • Pathogen diversity 
    Track the full scope of disease-causing pathogens* that exist in your community and see how their prevalence changes over time.

    *Pathogen diversity is limited to the targets present on the QIAstat-Dx panels.
  • Positivity rates
    See how positivity rates vary from week to week, month to month and year to year so you can react to outbreaks early and plan ahead for seasonal spikes in illness.
  • Ct values
    View the median and mean Ct value measurements for different pathogens over time, and track how these measures relate to the number of positive cases.
  • Co-detections over time
    View the top 5 most frequent pathogen co-detections over time, as well as a full breakdown of co-detections between every pathogen on a given QIAstat-Dx panel. 
  • Global perspective
    Scale up your insights – view epidemiology data for your institute and your entire geographic region. And with hundreds of QIAstat-Dx instruments connected to QIAsphere globally, you can even see aggregated, fully anonymized data from around the world. Data shown corresponds to RSV obtained using the QIAstat-Dx Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Panel from Nov 2022 – March 2023.
  • Customized .xls reports
    If you’re looking for a way to expedite your epidemiology reporting, this is it. From your Insights dashboard, select only the data you want to see. Then quickly and easily export and download a full, customized report of your data in .xls format.

Low-plex doesn’t cut it for respiratory infections

Our Insights dashboard shows that if you only test your patients for a few viral respiratory pathogens (Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV and SARS-CoV-2), you could be missing a huge proportion of positive cases.

A tale of two (types of) pathogens

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that up to 50% of all outpatient antibiotic use may be unnecessary or inappropriate in selection, dose and duration (

This rings true with results from our Insights dashboard for respiratory infections. In 2022, bacteria accounted for a very small percentage of positive detections, with viruses making up the vast majority.
