What is “Respiratory Pathogen Testing”

  • RPP is a qualitative test that will identify DNA from respiratory viruses and bacteria extracted from nasopharyngeal swabs from individuals with clinical signs and symptoms of a respiratory tract infection. This panel employs PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology which is used to “amplify” small quantities of nucleic acid into detectable levels which leads to accurate results.
