Biofire Respiratory RP2.1


The BioFire Respiratory Panel 2.1 (RP2.1) test is a multiplex PCR (polymerase chain reaction) assay used to detect and identify common respiratory pathogens. This comprehensive panel targets a wide range of viruses and bacteria known to cause respiratory infections, including influenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), human metapneumovirus (hMPV), adenovirus, and various strains of coronaviruses, among others. The test provides rapid and accurate results, usually within a few hours, enabling healthcare providers to quickly diagnose respiratory infections and initiate appropriate treatment. By identifying the specific pathogens responsible for respiratory illness, the BioFire RP2.1 test helps guide targeted therapy, optimize patient management, and minimize the unnecessary use of antibiotics. Its high sensitivity and specificity make it a valuable tool in the diagnosis and management of respiratory infections, particularly during outbreaks or flu seasons.
