The Panther Fusion Respiratory assays are the premier set of assays on the Panther Fusion® system. You can provide truly personalized syndromic respiratory testing with qualitative detection and differentiation of the most common respiratory viruses from a single patient sample. Each Panther Fusion Respiratory assay can be processed independently or simultaneously with other Panther Fusion® and Aptima® assays.
The Panther Fusion® SARS-CoV-2/Flu A/B/RSV, Panther Fusion® Flu A/B/RSV, Panther Fusion® Paraflu and Panther Fusion® AdV/hMPV/RV assays comprise the IVD respiratory testing menu on the fully automated Panther Fusion system. Each is a multiplex, real-time PCR in vitro diagnostic test. These assays can be run on nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens obtained from individuals exhibiting signs and symptoms of a respiratory tract infection.1-4 Additionally, the Panther Fusion® SARS-CoV-2 assay has received Emergency Use Authorization for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 from nasopharyngeal, nasal, mid-turbinate and oropharyngeal swab specimens, nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal wash, and lower respiratory tract specimens.5
