Diagnostic – Panther Fusion Respiratory


Extending your presence, expanding your potential

The Panther Fusion Respiratory assays for syndromic respiratory testing are the premier set of assays on the Panther Fusion system. Now you can provide truly personalized patient testing with qualitative detection and differentiation of the most common respiratory viruses using a single patient sample.

Each Panther Fusion Respiratory assay can be processed independently or simultaneously with other Panther Fusion assays. They can also be run alongside the full menu of Aptima assays for STIs, cervical disease and virology.

The Panther Fusion Respiratory menu leverages a legacy of expertise in respiratory viral molecular diagnostics from Hologic that began over a decade ago with the Prodesse Plus Series of respiratory assays. These newest Panther Fusion assays deliver on our promise of innovation and intuitive testing we first introduced many years ago.


The unmatched modular approach to syndromic respiratory testing

Three respiratory assays comprise the IVD respiratory testing menu on the Panther Fusion system. Each is a multiplex, real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in vitro diagnostic test. These assays isolate and purify nucleic acids from nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens obtained from patients who are symptomatic for respiratory tract infection. All three assays can be run from a single patient specimen loaded into the Panther Fusion system.

The Panther Fusion assays provide the flexibility to run patient-specific targets, allowing for personalized patient testing and better cost control in your lab.

  • The Panther Fusion Flu A/B/RSV assay – Qualitative detection and differentiation of influenza A virus, influenza B virus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)1
  • The Panther Fusion AdV/hMPV/RV assay – Qualitative detection and differentiation of adenovirus (AdV), human metapneumovirus (hMPV) and rhinovirus (RV)2
  • The Panther Fusion Paraflu assay – Qualitative detection and differentiation of parainfluenza 1 virus, parainfluenza 2 virus, parainfluenza 3 virus and parainfluenza 4 virus (HPIV-1, HPIV-2, HPIV-3 and HPIV-4)3

This menu allows the flexibility to process one assay independently or simultaneously with the other assays from a single patient specimen. This is a unique, modular approach to syndromic respiratory testing.


Leverage the benefits of the fully automated Panther Fusion system

The Panther Fusion system represents the latest innovation in Hologic diagnostic precision and automation. The Panther Fusion Respiratory assays leverage the benefits of the system as a whole, in addition to the assay-specific benefits.


  • The combined flexibility of PCR and transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)
  • True sample-to-result automation
  • The ability to run only necessary assays and reduce expenses from unnecessary testing
  • Total nucleic acid extraction, with multiple tests from a single sample and multiplexing
  • Unit dose lyophilized reagents, which eliminate reagent waste and the need for manual reagent preparation
  • The ability to hold up to 28 cartridges, each with 12 reactions per cartridge for a total of 336 tests
  • Kits that can be reloaded as they are consumed, without pausing testing

With the addition of the Panther Fusion Respiratory assays on the fully automated Panther Fusion system, you can detect respiratory viruses fast to stop the spread of these infections.
