NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel

Detect 20 respiratory pathogens in a single well, enabling thorough respiratory health analysis

Simplify your syndromic diagnostic testing with pre-plated, lyophilized reagents to facilitate a simple workflow with just one pipetting step, ensuring an easy fit in any lab’s daily routine.

Disease state

Respiratory tract infections involve a wide variety of etiologic agents, and present with overlapping signs and symptoms. Prediction of the causative organism based on clinical findings alone is not reliable. The most frequent agents responsible for respiratory infections are respiratory viruses, and then bacteria. Ensuring accurate detection of causative agents especially in high risk individuals, critically ill patients or to reflexing to determine unknown causes in ongoing sick individuals negative by targeted tests is key for appropriate patient management and or isolation. Panel testing is also highly valuable in determining respiratory pathogen outbreaks outside winter seasons.


Acute respiratory infection (ARI) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide

The value of NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel

Empower laboratories with a cost effective, highly scalable syndromic respiratory panel

Clinical impact

Guide timely and appropriate treatment decisions for inpatients and high-risk patients, as well as co-infections and fluctuating etiological agents.

Outstanding economic value

 Inexpensive reagents within a closed tube system reduce total workflow costs and minimize contamination.

Flexible format

A 96-well plate with breakaway wells saves valuable laboratory work and storage space and allows the flexibility to easily process 8 to 96 tests.

How the NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel Test works

NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel is a multiplexed in vitro diagnostic test for the detection and identification of respiratory disease causing viruses and bacterial.  Results are produced for 24 extracted DNA samples in less than 3 hours with only a single pipetting step.


Add sample

Add 1-96 extracted samples to the pre-plated, lyophilized test reagents.


Run test

Integrated multiplex PCR and bead hybridization.


Generate results

Read on the NxTAG®-Enabled MAGPIX® System.

Indications for NxTAG® Respiratory Pathogen Panel use


A qualitative test intended for the simultaneous detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple respiratory viruses and bacteria extracted from upper respiratory tract specimens


Hospitalized, Emergency Room or outpatient individuals with clinical signs and symptoms of a respiratory tract infection


High Complexity Hospital, Public Health or Reference Laboratories
