RPP Panel & RPP Plus Panel

RPP Panel Lab Opening Soon!

Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP) detects and identifies specific pathogen nucleic acids from individuals exhibiting signs and symptoms of respiratory infection aids in proper diagnosis. The Respiratory Pathogen Panel is used for the detection of respiratory viruses and bacterial pathogens.

Types of Viral Pathogens We Test for:

Adenovirus - Adenoviruses are medium-sized, nonenveloped viruses with an icosahedral nucleocapsid containing a double-stranded DNA genome. Their name derives from their initial isolation from human adenoids in 1953.

Boca-virus - Human bocavirus is the name given to all viruses in the genus Bocaparvovirus of virus family Parvoviridae that are known to infect humans. HBoV1 and HBoV3 are members of species Primate bocaparvovirus 1 whereas viruses HBoV2 and HBoV4 belong to species Primate bocaparvovirus

COVID-19 - an acute respiratory illness in humans caused by a coronavirus, capable of producing severe symptoms and in some cases death, especially in older people and those with underlying health conditions. It was originally identified in China in 2019 and became pandemic in 2020.

Coronavirus - any of a group of RNA viruses that cause a variety of respiratory, gastrointestinal, and neurological diseases in humans and other animals.

EBV(Mononucleosis) - EBV spreads most commonly through bodily fluids, especially saliva. However, EBV can also spread through blood and semen during sexual contact, blood transfusions and organ transplantations.

Enterovirus - any of a group of RNA viruses (including those causing polio and hepatitis A) which typically occur in the gastrointestinal tract, sometimes spreading to the central nervous system or other parts of the body.

HMPV (A/B) - Human metapneumovirus is a negative-sense single-stranded RNA virus of the family Pneumoviridae and is closely related to the Avian metapneumovirus subgroup C.

Influenza - a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory passages causing fever, severe aching, and catarrh, and often occurring in epidemics.

Parainfluenza - a disease caused by any of a group of viruses which resemble the influenza viruses.

Rhinovirus - any of a group of picornaviruses including those which cause some forms of the common cold.

RSV - Respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) virus, or RSV, is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be serious, especially for infants and older adults.
