Accurate Molecular Testing

A wide variety of methods have been developed over the years for the detection and identification of pathogens present in clinical samples. Throughout the years, molecular methods have been increasingly incorporated in laboratories and have fundamentally revolutionized microbiological diagnoses and have significant advantages over conventional culture-based methods.

At MedScan, we offer molecular testing services for our clients. This allows us to provide faster results that are achieved within hours instead of days and procedures that are more sensitive and specific.

The Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP)

MedScan Laboratory uses an advanced pathogen panel utilizing multiple
molecular hardware platforms. It is a comprehensive, detailed assay that detects
multiple respiratory pathogens simultaneously in a closed-tube, easy–to-use
system.

Why Respiratory Testing Matters

Upper respiratory infections are responsible for many life-threatening illnesses, especially in elderly populations. MedScan Laboratory offers a multiplexed molecular respiratory  pathogen panel developed to broaden and streamline testing for multiple viral and bacterial agents of the upper respiratory tract. The test is performed by nasopharyngeal swab and provides detailed information quickly and accurately.

Important Facts

  • A patient may be asymptomatic and yet a carrier of certain respiratory pathogens that can likely be transmitted to others.
  • Treatment protocols for bacterial pathogens and viral pathogens are vastly different –identifying the key pathogen can be imperative to implementing proper and effective treatment.
  • RPP test identifies which influenza virus is present in addition to other respiratory viruses and pneumonia causing bacteria. This allows health care providers to render appropriate treatment swiftly and accurately in efforts to reduce the severity and duration of infection.
  • Patients with positive results can not only be treated but quarantined as well to prevent other patients from contracting the infection
