      Transform Respiratory Specimen Processing

      Introducing Hologic’s new RespDirect™ Collection Kit. Samples arrive in the lab in an enhanced Direct Load Tube (eDLT) which enables laboratories to directly load samples for processing on the Panther Fusion system without any uncapping or specimen transfer steps.

      This primary collection device is validated for use with:

      Panther Fusion SARS-CoV-2/Flu A/B/RSV assay

      Vial and swab

      Our direct load tubes are safer, faster, cheaper.

      "The integrated approach of Hologic utilizing a collection device that can be loaded directly onto the Panther has led to faster throughput, safer handling and specimens and its automated nature led to lower overhead costs and decreased technologist turnover."
