Urgent Care 

Patients seek out speed and convenience when choosing an urgent care. Syndromic infectious disease testing offers the fast, comprehensive results that enable urgent care clinicians to make informed treatment decisions and give patients the answers they are looking for. 

Urgent Care Onsite Infectious Disease Testing

Diagnosing respiratory or gastrointestinal infections based on symptoms alone is difficult, if not impossible. Rapid respiratory antigen testing may only return results on two or three possible pathogens—and negative results leave patients without a clear answer. Meanwhile, send-out gastrointestinal stool testing is time consuming and often fails to provide actionable results. Onsite syndromic PCR testing enables urgent care clinics to provide fast answers on a broad array of possible pathogens.


For results that are fast and accurate, the BIOFIRE TORCH uses PCR technology to simultaneously test for a comprehensive grouping of targets in about an hour. For use in CLIA-moderate settings.
