Today’s targeted infectious disease diagnostics limit testing to the most common pathogens associated with a clinical syndrome. This leaves infections undiagnosed and may lead to additional downstream testing, patient dissatisfaction, and compromised patient care.
The BioFire® FilmArray® System uses syndromic testing to identify infectious diseases with several FDA-cleared and CE-marked assay-specific reagent panels. Each panel combines a broad grouping of probable pathogenic causes into a single, rapid test, requires only two minutes of hands-on time, and has about an hour turnaround time. This allows physicians to easily choose the right test, the first time.
