Respiratory Virus PCR Panel I

The Respiratory Virus PCR Panel I test contains 1 test with 9 biomarkers.

This test is used to determine the presence of respiratory virus RNA/DNA in a patient's specimen. PCR provides more rapid results than other methods, including culture. The use of a panel for virus detection provides a useful differential diagnosis.

The following is a list of what is included in the item above. Click the test(s) below to view what biomarkers are measured along with an explanation of what the biomarker is measuring.

Rsv RNA, Qualitative PCR

Parainfluenza 1 RNA

Human parainfluenza virus (types 1, 2, 3 and 4) are important respiratory pathogens and are major causes of upper and lower respiratory tract diseases.

Parainfluenza 2 RNA

Human parainfluenza virus (types 1, 2, 3 and 4) are important respiratory pathogens and are major causes of upper and lower respiratory tract diseases.

Parainfluenza 3 RNA

Human parainfluenza virus (types 1, 2, 3 and 4) are important respiratory pathogens and are major causes of upper and lower respiratory tract diseases.
