Respiratory Solutions

When a patient is suffering from respiratory symptoms, it’s impossible to know what’s causing the illness without diagnostic results. Our respiratory solutions provide fast, comprehensive, and accurate answers that offer peace of mind for patients and clinicians alike.

The Syndromic Approach to Respiratory Diagnostics

Many pathogens can cause typical respiratory symptoms, such as congestion, coughing, and fever. Whether it’s COVID-19, influenza, or the common cold, it’s difficult to diagnose the infection based on symptoms alone. With the bioMérieux syndromic approach, clinicians can test for a broad grouping of possible pathogens, all in one, quick test. Fast, comprehensive results enable timely and informed treatment decisions—which may strengthen patient satisfaction.
