The QuickVue RSV Test is a dipstick immunoassay that detects respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) antigen (viral fusion protein) directly from nasopharyngeal swab, nasopharyngeal aspirate, or nasal/nasopharyngeal wash specimens for symptomatic pediatric patients (eighteen years of age and younger). A single sample can be used to run both the QuickVue RSV Test and QuickVue brand Influenza tests.
