Flu Tests for 2018/2019

Flu Testing for Point-of-Care Diagnosis

Don't be caught off guard this flu season. No one knows whether this year will be better or worse than last year. As they say "past performance is no guarantee of future results." How severe the flu season will be is difficult to predict, and the key indicators used by the WHO, CDC, and others can only be obtained after flu season begins!

There are several types of flu tests on the market today. Sekisui Diagnostics can help with two flu tests to help clinicians master the art of influenza testing.
