Abstract
Acute respiratory infections (ARI) are one of the most common infectious diseases, especially in developing countries. Thus, early detection of the causative pathogen is critical in disease management, altogether reducing the socio-economic impact of complications arising from ARI. NxTAG Respiratory Panel is a high-throughput, multiplex nucleic acid amplification test (NAT) that is able to detect 19 different viruses and 3 bacteria from a single respiratory specimen. NxTAG is approved by FDA, CE and Health Canada regulatory bodies as an aid in detecting and identifying respiratory pathogens in the clinical setting. This study aims to deliver an overview of the epidemiology of respiratory infections in Peninsular Malaysia in different age groups of general population using the NxTAG respiratory panel.
