Nervous System Infection Panel
Nervous System Infection tests of cerebrospinal fluid identify 18 most common pathogens – viruses and bacteria – leading to meningitis.
We carry out the test using Real-Time PCR multiplex technology. The main benefits of this approach are its sensitivity, specificity and speed. And this is a priority with these types of tests. Unlike with traditional culture methods, this test can be conducted on patients up to 72 hours from the start of an antibacterial treatment. In such cases dead bacteria cells are identified. This test is also applicable in cases where small quantities of cerebrospinal fluid were obtained. Moreover it’s efficient even when the sample contains a very small concentration of pathogens.
This panel enables the detection of genetic material of:
Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Listeria monocytogenes,Neisseria meningitidis, group B streptococci , Escherichia coli K1.
Herpes simplex virus type 1, Varicella-zoster virus, Cytomegalovirus, Human herpesvirus 7, Herpes simplex virus type 2, Epstein-barr virus, Human herpesvirus 6, Parvovirus B19, Mumps virus, Parechovirus, Adenovirus, Enterovirus.
Cerebrospinal fluid is required for this test.
