Rapid and accurate detection of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) provides pathogen-specific diagnosis, allows implementation of appropriate infection control measures, and improves patient management. One diagnostic challenge is that respiratory infections, which can be caused by several viral pathogens including RSV, usually present with similar signs and symptoms that are nearly indistinguishable by clinical diagnosis. We have described in the chapter a rapid, high-throughput laboratory… CONTINUE READING
