Respiratory Panels

Rapid, accurate, cost-effective identification of common viral and bacterial organisms associated with respiratory infections

Basic Respiratory Panel

4-target panel for detecting and differentiating RSV, SARS-CoV-2 and influenza A & B in both swab and saliva

Extended Respiratory Panel

21-target panel (4 bacteria, 17 viruses), ideal for inpatient use and critical care


Test solely for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, rapidly and affordably.

SARS-CoV-2 Sequencing

Whole-genome, research-use sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 is available. Contact us for details.

Why Test Beyond COVID-19?

Identify infections/co-infections quickly to inform appropriate treatment

Similar Signs & Symptoms

Commonly circulating respiratory viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2, influenza and RSV, often have overlapping symptoms, making it difficult to define an infection or co-infection based on symptoms alone. Diagnostic testing can help inform effective treatment.

Respiratory Co-Infections

Respiratory co-infections are common and are associated with higher hospitalization and mortality rates. The sooner co-infections are identified, the sooner they can be properly treated.

Potential "Twindemic"

With the high potential for a "twindemic" this winter — a dangerous viral one-two punch of COVID-19 and the flu — it's more important than ever to take steps to mitigate transmission.

Why PRL?

Offering fast, affordable and reliable laboratory services

Faster Innovation

The only diagnostics center built from the ground up by a robotics company, PRL combines automation with proprietary assay development to innovate molecular diagnostics faster than any other provider

Test & Treat More Patients

Rapid test results allow a larger number of patients to be tested and treated, reducing cost of care.

Inform Optimal Treatment

Molecular testing of multiple respiratory pathogens at once can help identify infections and co-infections quickly and inform appropriate treatment.

Rapid Turnaround

With a combined capacity of more than 100K tests per day at our 3 CLIA-certified labs, we have returned 99% of results in under 24 hours.

SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A/B, RSV RNA, NAA PCR, Saliva, Swab and Respiratory Pathogen Panel, NAA PCR, Swab tests run in each PRL laboratory are independently developed and validated at their respective facility; performance of tests may vary.

PRL provides nationwide, industrial-scale diagnostic testing for COVID-19, infectious diseases and routine health, plus non-diagnostic sequencing for variant detection.
