In the Era of COVID-19, You Need the Complete Picture When Testing for Respiratory Pathogens

Using the NxGen MDx Respiratory Pathogen Panel, you get best-in-class accuracy and speed for detection of viral and bacterial pathogens, a 24 to 48 hour turnaround, simultaneous antibiotic and antiviral resistance testing, and personalized customer service. During the era of COVID-19, having the right information is more important than ever, which is why we include COVID-19 testing in our panel or as a standalone test.

22 Upper Respiratory Pathogens

23 Lower Respiratory Pathogens

A Powerful Follow Up to A Rapid Test

Patients who are symptomatic for a respiratory infection are often diagnosed using a rapid test. Rapid tests provide quick but limited testing for pathogens and have a high false negative rate. As a result, patients and doctors are often left wondering about the cause of the infection.

The NxGen Respiratory Pathogen Panel is the most comprehensive respiratory pathogen test available, looking at 23 viral and 10 bacterial pathogens. It also looks for antiviral and antibiotic resistance, giving you valuable information to plan patient care. Designed as a second-line test, it provides more detailed information than a simple rapid test.

Our panel can be ordered as a comprehensive test, or it can be broken out to test for upper or lower respiratory pathogens, depending on your needs.

Antiviral and Antibiotic Resistance

Testing for Co-Infections

While the majority of respiratory infections are caused by viruses for which antibiotics provide no benefit, up to 50% can also have a bacterial co-infection. Co-infections increase co-morbidity and mortality and antibiotic treatment may be effective.

Testing for COVID-19

Testing for COVID-19 is included in this panel. It can also be ordered as a standalone test. We also provide COVID-19 antibody testing for individuals to see if they have been infected previously.

NxGen also provides an employer group program designed to help organizations create safe workplace environments for their employees as the economy reopens and people get back to work. Our fast, reliable testing gives organizations of all sizes a way for their employees to be tested.
