Respiratory tract infections (RTI)

Respiratory tract infections are actually a spectrum of diseases associated with infection of both the upper and lower respiratory tract and include the common cold, otitis media, influenza-like illness, croup, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia. Viruses are the most common cause of respiratory tract infection ,such as influenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus ,adenovirus, rhinoviruses and coronavirus. It is often difficult to clinically differentiate viral and bacterial etiologies for some respiratory diseases. Nucleic acid amplification assays provide a rapid and extremely sensitive means to detect respiratory viruses. Understanding the biology and pathogenesis of the associated viruses is key to understanding diagnostic testing limitations.[1]

Sansure respiratory Solutions can not only achieve accurate and rapid identification of pathogens, but also accurately guide the prevention and control methods of respiratory diseases. It can provide the basis for the diagnosis of pathogens of mixed infections, provide guidance for the diagnosis and treatment of precision drug use, play a key role in preventing the abuse of antibiotics, and help to significantly reduce the mortality rate caused by intractable diseases and severe diseases of the respiratory system.
