Don't Get Tricked when Treating your Patients!
Many infections present with similar signs and symptoms. But today’s targeted infectious
disease diagnostics limit testing to only the most common pathogens associated with a
clinical syndrome. This leaves infections undiagnosed and may lead to additional
downstream testing, patient dissatisfaction, and compromised patient care.
Determining the cause of disease is the cornerstone of effective disease control and
prevention. However, etiologic diagnosis has declined over time, due in part to restrictions
imposed by managed care, laboratory regulations, and the increasing use of empirical
therapy. All contribute to compromising the quality of clinical care, surveillance, and
BioFire’s syndromic approach to infectious disease diagnostics is changing all of that. The
syndromic approach is a symptom-driven diagnostic method that combines a broad
grouping of probable pathogenic causes into a single, rapid test. This provides physicians
with the right test, the first time.
