High Volume Laboratories
The clinical sample from a patient presenting with an infectious syndrome could harbor a bacterium, virus, fungus, or protozoan as the causative pathogen.
Presently, samples are processed by:
- Culture, immuno-assay, and molecular tests using a variety of instruments.
- Batch testing causing delay
- Pooled Samples
MultiSeqTM HTM uses one set of instruments to test for all the prevalent pathogens simultaneously, using a single molecular test panel.
Presently donated blood is screened for multiple pathogens (Hepatitis B and C, HIV 1/2, HTLV 1/2, T. cruzi, Zika, Syphilis, West Nile Virus, Babesia, and CMV) using a combination of molecular and other tests on pooled blood samples and immunoassays.
The MultiSeqTM HTM uses one set of commercially available instruments to simultaneously test for all 10 pathogens using a single molecular test panel on each individual blood donation.
