(SARS-CoV-2 + INFLUENZA A/B + RSV)
qPCR Detection Kit
COVID-19, INFLUENZA and RSV virus cause very similar symptoms. The peak incidence of diseases caused by these viruses occurs in autumn and winter and spring. Based on the symptoms, it is difficult to determine what the patient is suffering from. Only the PCR test allows a certain diagnosis.

Did you know...?
In the autumn, winter and spring, cases of respiratory diseases increase. It is difficult to assess what the patient is suffering from by analyzing only his symptoms. The flu and COVID-19 viruses that mutate every year have been joined by a very dangerous (especially for small children) RSV virus. Only with the PCR test we are able to 100% confirm the cause of the disease.
How the disease spreads?
The viruses can be spread in tiny droplets through the mouth or nose of an infected person when that person coughs, sneezes, talks, sings or breathes. These particles range in size from larger respiratory droplets to smaller aerosols. Infection by inhaling the viruses can occur when you come into contact with a person suffering from COVID-19, INFLUENZA and RSV virus or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth. The viruses spread more easily indoors and in crowded places.
How the test is performed?
Virtually 100% certainty is provided by the PCR genetic test. The use of the RT-qPCR technique based on the detection of virus genetic material enables sensitive and specific identification of the pathogen. Genetic material analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. The individually designed primers and probes are 100% compatible with genomic RNA sequence of SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A and B, RSV as deposited in the NCBI database and human RNase P gene. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Is there a way to tell these diseases apart? Based on the symptoms, it’s difficult, because they are very similar - symptoms include: elevated temperature, cough, fatigue, headaches. However, there is a possibility to perform genetic tests, helpful in making the correct diagnosis. Only by determining the presence of the genetic material of a given pathogen are we able to know the cause of the disease.
What can be done after the test result?
Knowing the cause of the disease will make it easier for the doctor to prescribe the correct course of action. Flu, COVID-19 or RSV illness are treated differently. In the event of a negative result for all 3 pathogens, the patient may be offered another test to check for the presence of, e.g. Streptococcus pyogenes.
