Strep Complete

Pyogenic group C/G strep is a significant cause of strep pharyngitis in teenagers

and adults. These strains will go undetected when using a rapid antigen test.

Differentiate between A and the pyogenic C/G strains in just 30 minutes.

Group A and pyogenic Group C/G with no culture confirmation required.


Detect and differentiate Herpes simplex virus type 1, Herpes simplex virus type 2, and Varicella-zoster virus from any lesion in just 60 minutes.

Remove the uncertainty in your lesion diagnosis.

Group A Strep

30 minutes to a confirmatory Strep A diagnosis.  Gold standard sensitivity with the ability to

run up to 12 specimens in a single run, allowing prompt initiation of patient management and

antimicrobial therapy.

Group A strep testing with no culture confirmation required.

 Influenza A+B

Highly accurate molecular results in an actionable timeframe. Results you can trust for your high-risk patients, on a platform built for your lab in just 45 minutes.

Results you can trust when accuracy is critical.


The CDC recommends testing for Trichomonas using highly sensitive Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests,

like Solana, to avoid the under-diagnosis and under-treatment of Trichomonas infections.

Stop compromising. Start treating.

C. difficile

Change the way you monitor C. difficile results with Virena®. Virena provides an electronic patient de-identified data management system to monitor results on a daily basis.

Molecular testing with connectivity for easy results monitoring.
