Specimen Routine:
Nasopharyngeal swabs, nasopharyngeal(NP) aspirates, bronchoalveolar lavages, bronchial washings, expectorated and induced sputa, and tracheal aspirates. Specimens must be transported to the Microbiology laboratory as soon as possible, but no later than 2 hours post-collection.
See collection video if needed.
NOTE: For the most sensitive detection of Bordetella pertussis/parapertussis, the Bordatella pertussis/parapertussis PCR test should be ordered on an NP Swab.
Availability Routine: Daily, Monday - Friday
STAT:
No STAT Testing is available. Faster results for influenza and/or RSV can be obtained by following tests:
Rapid Flu PCR; Rapid FLU/RSV PCR
Turnaround Time Routine:
24 hours
Comments

Testing performed using the FDA-cleared FilmArray Respiratory Panel 2. Performance characteristics have been established and verified by the Clinical Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, UNC Medical Center. This assay does not distinguish between rhinovirus and enterovirus. Lower respiratory specimens will not be tested for Bordetella pertusiss/parapertussis. For nasopharyngeal swabs, cross-reactivity may occur between B. pertussis and non-pertussis Bordetella species. All positive B. pertussis results will be automatically confirmed using our in-house PCR assay.
