Detect 11 clinically relevant respiratory viruses
Influenza A, Influenza B, Rhinoviruses (A & B), Respiratory Syncytial Viruses (A & B), Human metapneumovirus, Adenoviruses, Human parainfluenza viruses 1, 2, 3 & 4 in a 2-well multiplex qPCR test
Laboratories face increasing numbers of respiratory samples for testing each year as greater pressure is placed on clinicians to determine the cause of infection before prescribing antibiotics.
Tested on hundreds of clinical and QAP samples, PlexPCR® RespiVirus demonstrates excellent sensitivity and specificity.
Streamline your workflow and increase productivity for rapid, routine diagnostics. Validated software solutions included in contract pricing, is license free, providing automated result calling and simple data processing.
Option to fully automate your workflow with the PlexPrep™ liquid handling solution for sample prep and qPCR set-up:

Clinical Prospective Study comparing In-house Respiratory Viral Assays With a Highly Multiplexed Commercial Assay developed by SpeeDx
Tested 204 upper respiratory and nasal swab specimens with PlexPCR RV 11 (beta) against in-house qPCR. Demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity even in complex multiplex assays with decreased reaction setup from 4 to 2 wells.
SpeeDx PlexPCR RespiVirus assay detects a broad range of contemporary human influenza strains and increases laboratory throughput and efficiency.
Bone S et al. 30th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) accepted abstract April 2020.
Conducted in silico analysis to investigate the inclusivity of the PlexPCR® RespiVirus assay against contemporary human strains of influenza A and B viruses and conduct a workflow analysis to calculate sample throughput for a testing laboratory during respiratory virus season. All strains from 2018/2019 vaccine strains are expected to be detected. Workflow analysis revealed that a typical testing laboratory would be able to process up to 192 samples in 3 hours and 45 minutes.
