Respiratory Viral ELITe MGB® Panel

Influenza A, influenza B and Respiratory syncytial viruses are the most common cause of acute respiratory infections. These respiratory viruses can also cause serious complications among persons with weak immune systems, such babies and the elderly. Simultaneous detection of Flu A, Flu B and HRSV A/B with molecular testing methods is important, to better manage patients and control infections.

Respiratory Viral ELITe MGB® Panel is a triplex PCR assay designed for the detection of Influenza A and B virus and respiratory syncytial viruses A and B specific genes. The assay is CE-IVD validated on respiratory swab samples, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.

Respiratory Bacterial ELITe MGB® Panel

Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, and Legionella pneumophila are common bacteria involved in respiratory infections, and responsible for severe complications, especially in the immunocompromised. Symptoms of respiratory infections are similar, non-specific, and not sufficient to clearly identify the causative agent. Molecular methods are the most efficient solutions to identify the right pathogen and provide an adapted patient treatment.

Respiratory Bacterial ELITe MGB® Panel is a multiplex PCR assay designed to detect and differentiate Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila/Legionella longbeachae DNAs. The assay is  validated on bronchoalveolar lavage samples, in combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result solution.
