Respiratory Panel by PCR
Test Code: FARP
Synonyms/Keywords
​Respiratory Virus, Virus Culture, Flu, RSV, Adeno, Entero, Rhino Virus
Test Components
​Adenovirus, Coronavirus (229E, HKU1, NL63, OC43), Enterovirus/Rhinovirus, Human Metapneumovirus, Influenza A (H1, H1-2009, H3), Influenza B, Parainfluenza 1, Parainfluenza 2, Parainfluenza 3, Parainfluenza 4, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Bordetella pertussis, Chlamydophilia pneumoniae,  and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
Useful For
RESTRICTED USE:
Test is available for ordering by Marshfield Medical Center, St. Clare's Hospital, Flambeau Hospital, MMC-Eau Claire, MMC-Neillsville and MMC-Rice Lake.  Not available to Outreach clients at this time.
 
Not for routine diagnosis of viral syndrome illness. To be used in serious lower respiratory illness in urgent care/emergency room/intensive care settings. The FilmArray® Respiratory Panel is used for the qualitative detection and identification of multiple respiratory viral and bacterial nucleic acids in nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid or bronchial washings from individuals with suspected respiratory tract infections.  The panel detects the following upper respiratory viruses and bacteria: Adenovirus, Coronavirus (229E, HKU1, NL63, OC43), Human Metapneumovirus, Influenza A (subtypes H1, H1-2009, H3), Influenza B, Parainfluenza virus 1, Parainfluenza virus 2, Parainfluenza virus 3, Parainfluenza virus 4, Human Rhinovirus/Enterovirus, Respiratory Syncytial virus, Bordetella pertussis, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, and Mycoplasma pneumonia.
 
This respiratory panel does not detect the pandemic coronavirus strain (COVID-19)

Test Information
The detection and identification of specific viral and bacterial nucleic acids from individuals exhibiting signs and symptoms of a respiratory infection aids in the diagnosis of respiratory infection if used in conjunction with other clinical and epidemiological information. The results of this test should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis, treatment, or other management decisions.
