Seegene invents its new Seeplex 18-plex Respiratory Test as an essential tool for active surveillance and treatment of respiratory illnesses. Compared to the usual ‘single pathogen – single test’ testing regime the new multiplex-formatted diagnostic test, for which nasopharyngeal spirates, nasopharyngeal swabs or bronchoalveolar lavage samples could be used, is cost-effective and delivers fast results.

The Test detects the following  RNA viruses, DNA viruses and pneumonia bacteria:

      -          Influenza A virus
-          Influenza B virus
-          Human respiratory syncytial virus A
-          Human respiratory syncytial cirus B
-          Human parainfluenzae virus 1
-          Human parainfluenzae virus 2
-          Human parainfluenzae virus 3
-          Human coronavirus 229E/NL63
-          Human coronavirus OC43/HKU1
-          Human rhinovirus
-          Human enterovirus
-          Human adenovirus
-          Human bocavirus
-          Legionella pneumoniae
