The FilmArray respiratory panel is a multiplex PCR test capable of qualitatively detecting DNA or RNA of 20 pathogens (bacteria and viruses) in approximately 1 hour from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid or bronchial washings.


This test is used to diagnose infection caused by adenovirus, coronavirus (HKU1, NL63, 229E, OC43), human metapneumovirus, human rhinovirus/enterovirus, influenza A (H1, H1-2009, H3), influenza B, parainfluenza (1, 2, 3, 4), respiratory syncytial virus, Bordetella pertussis, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
