Respiratory Virus Test for More Coverage and Accuracy


Xpert® Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus* - Diagnostic PCR test that detects and differentiates SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV

More coverage. More accuracy. More peace of mind.

In the Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus test, the addition of a primer/probe set for the detection of a third SARS-CoV-2 target, RdRP, will add further redundancy and enhance gene coverage to proactively address increasing diversity due to mutations in the N2 and/or E gene targets.

Molecular methods targeting multiple gene targets within the viral genome allow for more reliable detection of strains undergoing genetic variation.

Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus has been designed to give healthcare providers confidence in their results and decisions.
