DiaPlexQ™ PneumoPatho 6 Detection Kit

The DiaPlexQ™ PneumoPatho 6 Detection Kit is designed to detect 6 major species of Pneumonia using the Multiplex PCR technology which can detect multiple specific target genes in a single PCR.

Pathogen Information


Pneumonia is usually caused by infectious organisms mostly by viruses or bacteria. Pneumonia affects approximately 450 million people globally per year, seven percent of the global population, and results in about 4 million deaths per year, mostly in third world countries.
