Co-detection data:

* Data on file

Since the 2009 H1N1 epidemic, new light has been shed on the role co-infections may play in the virulence of respiratory infections. Recent studies, such as The impact of bacterial and viral co-infection in severe influenza , suggest that patients who develop more severe respiratory infections often have a co-infection. For more co-detection data and analysis from Diatherix, view this poster presented at IDweek 2013.

Detection of bacteria and viruses can improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

TEM-PCR™ provides the ability to identify patients with viral, bacterial or both viral and bacterial pathogens from a single specimen in one day and allows the clinician to:

  • •  

    Withhold antibiotics in patients with viral detection

  • •  

    Administer appropriate antibiotic and/or antiviral therapy

  • •  

    Incorporate evidence-based medicine to enhance the quality and cost-effectiveness of patient care
