RPS Adeno Detector Plus
Rapid Pathogen Screening recently gained FDA 510(k) clearance on its latest point-of-care diagnostic test—the RPS Adeno Detector Plus. It requires only a small sample of human tears to detect all known serotypes of adenoviral conjunctivitis in just 10 minutes, the company says.

The RPS Adeno Detector Plus demonstrates a clinical sensitivity of 90% and a specificity of 96% when compared against cell culture as the reference method. This level of accuracy allows for appropriate patient management at the office and reduces future visits, additional lab testing and unnecessary prescription costs, the company says.
