>20 common respiratory pathogens
Validated clinical performance
Rapid, accurate, actionable results
Improve patient outcome
Reduce the cost of care

Influenza is often the first pathogen that comes to mind with a respiratory infection, but many other virus and bacteria have a similar clinical presentation.

Comprehensive detection of the most common viral and bacterial pathogens ensures that each patient is given the most appropriate treatment quicker.

Due to the simplicity of the ePlex system it lends itself perfectly to point of care settings with only 2 minutes hands on time per sample.


Implementing ePlex Can:

Reduce the time the patient spends in ED or ICU waiting for a result

Optimise bed management with faster admission and discharge of patients based on results

Initiate targeted therapy quicker and reduce unnecessary use of antibiotics for viral infections

Streamline isolation protocols to prevent the spread of infection

Reduce confirmatory testing to identify the cause of infection
