Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP)

PCR Testing Targeting Infection Causes and Best Treatment


Respiratory Pathogen Panel (RPP) detects specific nucleic acid pathogens from patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of respiratory illness. RPP testing provides proper diagnosis and detection of both viral and bacterial infections with 24 hour turnaround time. Covid-19 is included on our 30 pathogen panel. Respiratory panel testing is non-invasive which helps to minimize patient’s discomfort.

Why Real-Time PCR


   The “gold standard” of infectious disease testing
   Precise results within 24 hours
   Captures genetic makeup for wide range of microbes
   Results not affected by current AB use
