Leverage the power molecular technologies for faster and more accurate and actionable diagnosis in case of infectious disorders

Advantages of molecular testing for viral infections

  • Rapid antigen tests are not always sensitive
  • Viral culture methods are too slow and have limited menu
  • Clinical presentation for several infections are at times, not specific
  • Easier sample transportation for molecular assays as compared to culture samples
  • Sensitivity of molecular assays estimated to be 3 to 5 times that of culture-based assays
  • Molecular tests identify approximately 50% more viral pathogens than culture
