Overview

BIOFIRE® SPOTFIRE® Respiratory Panels bring PCR diagnostic power closer to patients via a Point-of-Care syndromic approach that combines symptom-driven testing for a broad grouping of probable respiratory pathogens into one rapid test. With its revolutionary portfolio of versatile, lab-grade respiratory multiplex PCR tests, clinicians can provide patient results in about 15 minutes during their appointments.

With these panels, healthcare professionals have the potential to:
 
  • Inform Clinical Decisions: High sensitivity, specificity, and reliability provides results clinicians can trust. Testing for more than flu, RSV, and SARS-CoV-2 with one test provides healthcare professionals with a fuller picture.
  • Support Antimicrobial Stewardship: Comprehensive results in a clinically actionable timeframe may inform comprehensive diagnosis and optimize care and antimicrobial stewardship. Targeted, informed therapy can reduce the unnecessary prescription of antimicrobials.
  • Improve Patient Satisfaction: Administering one swab, on one test that detects multiple pathogens may result in reduced follow-up appointments, swabbing, and testing, which could improve patient comfort, experience, and convenience.
  • Optimize Operations: The simple workflow and quick turnaround time enables rapid and comprehensive answers, which can be communicated to patients during the appointment, potentially reducing the need for callbacks or expensive and slow send-out testing.
