VERIGENE® Respiratory Pathogens Flex Test

A flexible, multiplexed respiratory panel for syndromic testing

Automated, multiplexed panel for the identification of the most common respiratory pathogens with the flexibility to pay for only selected pathogens within the comprehensive panel.

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 viruses, followed by bacteria. Large respiratory panels for syndromic testing may not suit diverse seasonal, geographic, and patient-to-patient respiratory testing needs.  A single comprehensive panel capable of bridging the gap between small and large panels by tailoring the number of pathogens reported is an ideal solution for clinical and cost-efficiencies to pay for only selected pathogens within the comprehensive panel.

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

The value of VERIGENE® Respiratory Pathogens Flex Test

Personalize your syndromic respiratory testing with one loaded panel

Proven clinical impact

Prioritize crucial patient samples while managing routine test volumes and maximize laboratory efficiencies by matching pathogens to test orders.

Outstanding economic value

Flex testing to enable labs to only pay for targets  needed  for test orders and confidently face potential changes in the reimbursement landscape.

The right assay design

Manage test workloads with an easy-to-use, automated, scalable benchtop platform, allowing 24/7 on-demand testing with results in approximately 2 hours.

How the VERIGENE® Respiratory Pathogens Flex Test works

VERIGENE® Respiratory Flex test is a sample-to-answer, multiplexed in vitro diagnostic test for the detection and identification of respiratory disease-causing viruses and bacteria from patient samples.



Load the ready -to-go consumables (Extraction Tray, Tip Holder Assembly and Utility Tray) into the VERIGENE® SP instrument.
