    This is an IVD Diagnostic study.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Nasopharyngeal Swab

Enrollment: 1487
Study Start Date: November 2013
Study Completion Date: November 2015
Primary Completion Date: November 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The purpose of this investigational study is to collect clinical samples to establish the clinical performance characteristics of the in vitro diagnostic (IVD) Respiratory Viral Panel on the GenMark Sample-to-Answer Platform. Data obtained from the samples will be used to support premarket submissions/registrations for this GenMark product. Samples will be aliquotted, characterized by comparator methods and banked until the instrument and assay are available for testing.

Sample collection may be prospective or retrospective. Prospective collection will preserve prevalence. Retrospective collection will be used to obtain sufficient numbers of certain sample types such as where the organism of interest is of low prevalence. The Sponsor will ensure that information identifying samples as prospectively or retrospectively collected is documented.
