True Health Respiratory Pathogen Screening

True Health launched the respiratory pathogen screening, a single test that targets 21 viral and bacterial pathogens to help clinicians determine the correct treatment for respiratory illnesses during cold and flu season. True Health's program is built to identify the specific cause of the infection so clinicians can prescribe an effective treatment. The 21-pathogen screen has a one day turn around from receipt of the specimen at the lab to delivering the results. The screen is conducted using multiplex PCR.
