Respiratory Tract Infection Panel Testing

Virant Diagnostics' respiratory tract infection (RTI) panel testing allows quick identification of causative pathogens, prompting faster targeted clinical decisions, leading to better patient outcomes.

About Our RTI Testing Services

At Virant Diagnostics, we use gold standard PCR technology to genetically identify upper respiratory pathogens. Our test panels provide significantly faster, more specific and accurate results in comparison to traditional culture.

Why Choose RTI Panel Testing with Virant Diagnostics?

Our expert scientists and technicians have an efficient workflow supplemented with advanced PCR technology to guarantee results within 24 hours. Most results will be reported the same day. Our staff physicians understand the value of these PCR-based panels because they result in better patient outcomes.

  • Faster reports means that targeted antivirals or antibiotics can be initiated sooner, if medication is even necessary
      • avoid unnecessary side effects with common, but potentially irrelevant “broad-spectrum” medications
      • prevent complications
      • promote and enhance responsible antibiotic stewardship
  • More specificity means a higher degree of certainty:
      • less confusion of similar-appearing cultures, if the pathogen can even be cultured
      • less errors, less complications, therefore better patient outcomes
