1 streamlined system. Many applications.

The FilmArray is an easy-to-use multiplex PCR system with a variety of diagnostic applications. The FDA-cleared Blood Culture Identification (BCID) Panel and Respiratory Panel (RP) are lab-ready today, and the Gastrointestinal (GI), Meningitis/Encephalitis (ME), and Lower Respiratory Panels are in development.

Both the Respiratory Panel and the BCID Panel are comprehensive and, combined, test for more than a hundred pathogens. The FilmArray tests for viruses, bacteria, yeast and antimicrobial resistance genes. Whether you’re trying to select appropriate therapy for a septic patient, or determine exactly which respiratory pathogen is making a young child sick, the FilmArray can return answers fast.
