What is Syndromic Testing?
Symptoms + Signs = Syndrome
A symptom is a feature apparent to the patient—like a sore throat.
A sign is a measurable indication of disease—like a temperature of 102° Fahrenheit.
A syndrome is a set of signs and symptoms that characteristically occur together.
The BioFire® FilmArray® System performs syndromic tests. Each panel targets a comprehensive grouping of pathogens that could be causing a specific syndrome—like an upper respiratory infection.
