We all know the symptoms well…coughing, sneezing, fever, body aches, stuffy nose making it nearly impossible to get much-needed rest. When a respiratory infection hits, it’s guaranteed misery for at least a few days. But, for some individuals, a respiratory infection can be much more serious. For more vulnerable patients, like children and the elderly, a respiratory illness can lead to hospitalization, more severe symptoms and even death. Pharmacogenetic Testing can complete accurate and reliable molecular testing for PCR upper respiratory illness to help physicians provide the best possible care to their patients.
Testing Lab for Respiratory Viral Infections
Molecular PCR upper respiratory testing is a relatively new battery of laboratory diagnosis that can help identify the exact respiratory illness that a patient is battling so that treatment can be swift and accurate and more effective.
This laboratory diagnostic testing is ideal for patients who might be highly susceptible to illness, when it is critical that a treatment plan is put in place as quickly as possible. Groups of patients that may benefit most from molecular testing for PCR upper respiratory illness include:
- Immunocompromised patients (including transplant and cancer patients)
- Children or elderly who have already been admitted to the hospital
- Elderly patients with pre-existing health conditions
