Tackling a Pertussis Outbreak with the BioPerfectus PCR Solution


The Philippines' Department of Health (DOH) issued a concerning report on April 9th: the bacterial disease #pertussis is rapidly spreading nationwide. Between Jan. 1 and March 30, DOH tallied 1,112 cases, a 34-fold increase from last year, resulting in 54 children's deaths.🚼

Pertussis, a highly contagious respiratory infection transmitted via sneezing or coughing, poses severe health risks, particularly to infants. Rapid response efforts are crucial to protect millions of vulnerable and prevent further escalation of this preventable disease.

In response, BioPerfectus introduces the Allfastra Respiratory Bacteria Panel (7) Real Time PCR Kit, designed to safeguard respiratory health. This kit employs multiplexed real-time PCR technology to precisely detect common bacterial pathogens associated with respiratory infections.

🔬It efficiently identifies Pertussis (caused by bordetella pertussis) and other vital respiratory pathogens, including Haemophilus influenzae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Chlamydia pneumoniae from the human nasopharyngeal swab, sputum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid.

Key Features:

7-in-1 Multiplex PCR assay for simultaneous detection

Rapid results within 46 minutes

Comprehensive external controls (Positive, weak positive and negative controls)

Auto-interpretation with STC real-time PCR system
