Respiratory Infection Testing | Qnostics Molecular Controls

Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are common conditions, affecting both the upper and lower respiratory tract. For the young, the elderly and the immunocompromised, RTIs can be a significant health threat if not managed effectively.

The Qnostics’ Respiratory portfolio cover a range of common viral pathogens including: ADV, INFA, INFB, PINF, RSV A, RSV B and RV. All Qnostics products are manufactured to be whole pathogen with many available as Q Control, Molecular Q Panel, Analytical Q Panel and Evaluation Panel. Check out the full range below.

Q Controls

Qnostics’ ‘Q’ Controls are positive run controls intended to help laboratories monitor their molecular diagnostic assay on a run-to-run basis within customer derived limits. These third-party independent external controls will ensure that assay drift is detected, monitored and managed allowing the laboratory to continue to provide accurate and reliable results. They also help support a laboratory’s regulatory requirements under the standard ISO 15189.
