About this study

The Curetis Unyvero LRT55 Application is intended to detect and to identify genes of 21 microorganisms and 19 genes associated with antibiotic resistance in 4 hours.

In this study, the performance of the Unyvero LRT55 Application shall be tested under clinical conditions and compared to (1) a composite reference method (for non-atypical or cultured microorganisms) or (2) a molecular PCR based reference method for the 3 atypical microorganisms Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Legionella pneumoniae, and Pneumocystis jirovecii, and for resistance genes.

PCR amplifications are followed by bi-directional sequencing, including comparison of the test results Time to result will be compared for the Unyvero LRT55 Application and standard-of care.
