Pharyngitis Molecular Testing Panel

Pharyngitis is inflammation of the pharynx, which is in the back of the throat.

It is most often referred to simply as a “sore throat.” Pharyngitis can also cause scratchiness in the throat and difficulty swallowing.

Our pharyngitis panel is a comprehensive panel detecting, by molecular technique, the most common pathogens infecting the throat.


Those patients affected by Pharayngitis may experience some of the following symptoms:

A red throat

Runny or stuffy nose

Dry cough


Redness of the eyes


s a CLIA high-complexity COLA accredited laboratory, we assist clinicians and health care providers to quickly identify the pathogens and underlying causes of disease.

We know better patient outcomes are achieved through fast, accurate, and reliable laboratory results.
