What is Flu (Influenza)?
Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.
What is RSV?
Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. It can become serious, especially for infants and older adults.
How the test works
The test is performed using Real-Time PCR Instrument System for the detection of Viral-RNA.
One nasopharyngeal swab is used for the RSV, FluA and FluB combination assay which are intended for use in simultaneous detection and differentiation of RSV, influenza A, and/or influenza B nucleic acid in clinical specimens and is not intended to detect influenza C virus.
You can choose to run COVID-19, Flu, and RSV all together or choose individual tests.
This test will determine the presence or absence of respective Viral-RNA.
Typically 24-48 hours from sample collection.
