Biofire Pneumonia panel will generally detect more organism than a quantitative culture
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Infectology and Clinical Microbiology

"Is a powerful tool that can aid in the diagnosis of lower respiratory tractinfections,It brings the speed and accuracy of molecular diagnostics to pathogen identificiaction in lower respiratory tract specimens.Real time PCR is used to measure pathogen-specific nucleic acid and does not require an organism to grow on culture media."

Review date: 09 Feb 2023 | BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® Pneumonia (PN) Panel

When it comes to pneumonia, it is often difficult to pin down the cause of infection using traditional methods. The BIOFIRE PN Panel is more sensitive and comprehensive than standard-of-care culture. One syndromic test, one patient sample, and about an hour are all it takes to deliver actionable answers.

  • Identifies 33 clinically relevant viruses, bacteria, and antimicrobial resistance genes
  • Semi-quantitative results on 15 bacteria can help determine if a detected organism is causing the infection
  • Can be used to test sputum-like (including endotracheal aspirate) and bronchoalveolar lavage-like (including mini-BAL) samples
  • Pathogen-specific results may lead to antibiotic de-escalation and help physicians put patients on optimal therapy sooner
