The extended molecular panel combines SARS-CoV-2 with other common respiratory pathogen targets. It includes 19 viral and two bacterial targets.

Both tests can detect SARS-CoV-2 in 90 minutes and will detect viruses like influenza and respiratory syncytial virus that tend to occur in the winter.

The panel tests for 23 pathogens covering 19 viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, and four bacteria that are responsible for the most frequent respiratory infections.

The better-than-expected sales growth reflects "very significant demand" for COVID-19 testing products, tempered by weaker customer demand in other product areas.

The real-time RT-PCR multiplex test is intended for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A virus, and influenza B virus.

The company's revenue growth was driven by increasing sales of its ePlex molecular diagnostics analyzer, which now has a SARS-CoV-2 test.

The team characterized immune, viral load, and age differences in children with severe responses to respiratory syncytial virus using an integrated analytical strategy.

The firm believes that its molecular assay for the laboratory will help ease some of the supply chain issues hampering test rollout during the pandemic.

The test, developed by the firms in six weeks, is part of a viral respiratory panel and runs on Bosch's point-of-care Vivalytic system.

The panel can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and 20 other pathogens known to cause serious respiratory disease from nasopharyngeal swabs in symptomatic patients.
