Efficient detection of human respiratory viral pathogens is crucial in the management of patients with acute respiratory tract infection. Sequence-independent amplification of nucleic acids combined with next-generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics analyses is a promising strategy for identification of pathogens in clinical and public health settings. It allows the characterization of hundreds of different known pathogens simultaneously and also novel pathogens that elude conventional testing. However, major hurdles for routine use exist, which include cost, turnaround time, and especially sensitivity of the assay as the detection limit is dependent on viral load, host genetic material, and sequencing depth. To obtain insight into these aspects, we analysed nasopharyngeal aspirates from a cohort of 81 children with respiratory disease from Thailand for the presence of respiratory viruses using both a sequence-independent next generation sequencing approach and routinely used real time diagnostic (RT)-PCR assays. With respect to rhino- and human metapneumovirus detection, the next generation sequencing approach was at least as sensitive as diagnostic real time (RT)-PCR in this small cohort, whereas for boca- and enterovirus, next generation-sequencing revealed to be less sensitive than real time (RT-)PCR. The advantage of the sequencing approach over real time (RT-)PCR was the immediate availability of virus typing information. Considering the development of platforms capable of generating more output data at declining costs, next generation sequencing remains of interest for future virus diagnosis in clinical and public health settings, certainly as an additional tool after screening with real time (RT-)PCR is negative.
