Why Get a Flu Test

Our flu test will identify the specific virus that is causing your symptoms. This is important because there are many different viruses (as well as bacteria and other things) that can cause flu like symptoms. If your doctors don’t know the root cause of your condition, they may be recommending the wrong medications or treatment options. When you come to our influenza testing laboratory here in Linden, NJ we will do a full virus panel to discover which (if any) virus is causing your issues. Once we get the results we can provide them to you and your doctors so that they can prescribe the proper medications or make other recommendations to get you back on your feet as fast as they can. Our flu test panel ill test for many different viruses including the following:

  • Adenovirus B/E
  • Adenovirus C
  • Human Metapneumovirus (HMPV)
  • Human Rhinovirus (HRV)
  • Influenza A
  • Influenza A 2009 H1N1 *AKA Swine Flu

  • Parainfluenza Virus (PIV) 2
