Panther Fusion® AdV/hMPV/RV Assay

Evolve your syndromic respiratory testing with a fully automated, modular approach. The Panther Fusion® assays on the Panther Fusion® system increase flexibility to run patient-specific targets, allowing for personalized patient testing and better cost control in your lab.

The Panther Fusion AdV/hMPV/RV assay is for the detection and differentiation of

  • Adenovirus
  • Human metapneumovirus
  • Rhinovirus

Use the Panther Fusion AdV/hMPV/RV assay alone or in combination with the Panther Fusion® Paraflu and Panther Fusion® Flu A/B/RSV assays to leverage the Panther Fusion system’s modular approach to syndromic respiratory testing.

The Panther Fusion system and Panther Fusion AdV/hMPV/RV assay are not available in the US. Please contact your local sales representative for product availability.

 

About

The Panther Fusion AdV/hMPV/RV assay is a multiplex real-time PCR (RT-PCR) in vitro diagnostic test for the rapid and qualitative detection and differentiation of Adenovirus (AdV), human Metapneumovirus (hMPV), and Rhinovirus (RV). Nucleic acids are isolated and purified from nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens obtained from individuals exhibiting signs and symptoms of a respiratory tract infection.

The Panther Fusion system fully automates the processing of 1, 2 or all 3 Panther Fusion respriatory assays from a single patient sample

Features

The Panther Fusion assays on the Panther Fusion system increase efficiency and reduce costs in your lab. Features include:

Cost control

Run only the needed assays to avoid unnecessary expenses.

Inclusivity

Offers comprehensive coverage of target analytes.

Unit dose, lyophilized format

Minimize reagent waste and achieve long on-board stability.

Total nucleic acid extraction

Use a single extraction for multiple assays, improved multiplexing and Open Access™ capabilities.

Bulk onboard reagents

Reduce user interaction and return visits to the system for increased lab efficiency.

Performance Data

Table 1: AdV Results

* Two out of 3 discordant specimens were tested with FDA cleared assay. AdV was not detected in both specimens. Untested discordant specimens had insufficient volumes.
**
Six out of 11 discordant specimens were tested with FDA cleared assay. AdV was detected in 5 specimens. Untested discordant specimens had insufficient volumes

 

Table 2: hMPV Results

* Nineteen out of 24 discordant specimens were tested with in-house developed and validated RT-PCR assay. hMPV was detected in 4 specimens. Untested discordant specimens had insufficient volumes.

 

Table 3: RV Results

* Twenty-three out of 28 discordant specimens were tested with an in-house developed and validated bidirectional sequencing assay. RV was not detected in 16 out of 23 tested. Untested discordant specimens had insufficient volumes.
** All 12 discordant specimens were tested with an in-house developed and validated bidirectional sequencing assay. RV was detected in 9 specimens.
