Pneumonia is a leading cause of hospitalization worldwide.1 Signs and symptoms range from mild to life-threatening, and optimal treatment depends on quickly identifying the pathogen responsible for infection. But did you know that traditional testing methods fail to determine a causative agent in over half of pneumonia patients?2
The BioFire® FilmArray® Pneumonia (PN) Panel is a molecular diagnostic test that was made to meet this challenge. Our most advanced panel to date, it is the only FDA-cleared sample-to-answer assay that tests for 26 pathogens and 7 antibiotic resistance markers associated with pneumonia. It is also the first FDA-cleared molecular test to report semi-quantitative results on 15 bacteria.
