mariPOC® Quick Flu tests
Quick Flu tests are intended for rapid testing of the most common pathogens that cause severe respiratory infections. The tests help to diagnose and differentiate COVID-19, influenza A, influenza B and RSV for effective clinical management and treatment decisions.
Viruses are the most common cause of respiratory infections but antibiotics do not help in treating viral cold. However, there is an effective drug for influenza, which helps to minimize influenza related morbidity, lessen the symptoms, and reduce the symptomatic time by up to two days. RSV causes similar symptoms as influenza and COVID-10, and is very important pathogen in children and the elderly. The Quick Flu tests support physicians in differential diagnosis of these viral diseases.
Rapid and reliable results
mariPOC® Quick Flu tests detect the most important viruses causing respiratory tract infections from one nasopharyngeal sample in 20 minutes. This rapid syndromic test outperforms conventional immunochromatography rapid tests in accuracy and reliability.
Quick and easy sampling
Typically the sampling is done by taking a flocked swab sample from the nasopharynx. Sample pretreatment, prior to automated analysis, is easy to do with short hands-on-time.
