Syndromic Testing

Faster answers, better care

Help your patients lead healthier, happier lives 

Why did you go into medicine? Was it to improve the health of your community? To bring new life into the world? To give yourself an intellectual challenge? Whatever your motivation, the outcome is the same: You help others because #LifeMatters to you.

Now, let us help you by taking the guesswork out of your diagnostics.

With our fully automated diagnostic systems, we can help you get the answers you need, right when you need them. So you can help your patients get better, faster, and accomplish #WhatMatters to you.

With multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) panel testing for infectious diseases, there’s no longer any need to guess. In about an hour, you can get results for 20 or more pathogens. These tests show better analytical sensitivity than traditional methods and reduce the need for retesting, as more pathogens are detected the first time (1–4). 

And multiplex PCR assays are recommended by a number of international medical bodies for certain disease states (5). 

Your patients with infectious diseases need more than just medical treatment. They want you to tell them what’s making them sick and reassurance that the best course of action is being taken. If you don’t think they need an antibiotic, they need to know why. With multiplex PCR panel testing, you can give them a better experience by supplying them with a definitive answer.

But it’s not just about patient satisfaction. Multiplex PCR panel testing provides real, tangible benefits for patients by enabling better patient management:

Global antimicrobial resistance is growing, and the WHO lists resistance as one of the world’s most significant health threats. But evidence-based diagnostics can help us fight back. By knowing your enemy, you can use antibiotics more deliberately. Multiplex PCR panel tests are helping healthcare providers optimize their antibiotic use:

Save on costs

The institutional savings start to add up when hospital admission, isolation procedures and antibiotic prescriptions are used more shrewdly. Several studies have shown that multiplex PCR panel testing can save on overall healthcare costs (2, 6, 8).
