Respiratory Pathogen Testing
Breathe Well. Live Well.

According to the CDC:

• Up to million people contract the flu each year
• Pneumonia leads to approximately 1.3 million emergency department visits per year and causes more than 50,000 deaths2
• The flu and pneumonia combined rank in the top ten for leading causes of death in the United States3
• Annually, more than 10,000,000 people suffer from chronic bronchitis in United States
• The Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19) has a mortality rate 10 times greater than the flu

Point-of-care assays provide for limited peace of mind as they have limited ability to test for multiple disease states. Additionally, point-of-care testing can lead to inaccuracies of results due to faulty devices or suboptimal collection methods as a result of staff with limited laboratory background. This can lead to delays in proper diagnoses and lends to the progression of the disease. Molecular testing at Patients Choice Laboratories provides accuracy and speed necessary for clinicians to effectively identify and address respiratory infections.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 COVID-19

• Average person with COVID-19 infects 2.5 people1
• Average person with COVID-19 infects 2.5 people1
• Coronavirus can incubate for up to 14 days2
• Mode of transmission is human to human via respiratory droplets3
• Coronavirus can remain viable in the air for up to 3 hours4
• Found to be more contagious than SARS and MERS5

Identifying people with the highly contagious COVID-19 is critical so that patients receive the necessary care needed for recovery, as well as stemming the spread of the virus throughout our communities.
