What is it?
Detection of bacterial meningitis
This PCR flow-through hybridization assay is used to identify 12 bacterial meningitis pathogens.
The assay features:
Genotyping – Identifies Haemophilus influenza, Listeria monocytogenes, Neisseria meningitides, Mycoplasma pneumonia, Streptococcus pneumonia, Enterococcus faecium, Streptococcus agalactiae, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli K1
Internal amplification control (IAC) – A positive control to verify sufficient sample amount, successful DNA extraction and DNA amplification
Hybridization control (HC) – A positive control to verify the success of the hybridization reaction
The fast, cost-effective test is applied to human serum or plasma specimens. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
This assay is used with the FTPRO flow-through hybridization platform.
Each consumable assay kit is capable of 32 reactions.
Who is it for?
This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of populations at risk of bacterial meningitis.
It’s useful for designing treatment regimes for patients diagnosed with bacterial meningitis.
The kit is also useful for researchers involved with bacterial meningitis.
Why is it different?
This highly sensitive test is currently the most cost-effective solution for identifying specific type of bacteria, causing infection, so as to provide appropriate antibiotic treatment as soon as possible.
It’s fast and can deliver results 3 hours after extraction. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
The test features sample quality control and is easy to apply.
Practical – Detects 12 bacterial meningitis pathogens in 1 go
Fast – Delivers results in approximately 3 hours, tests up to 16 samples simultaneously
Easy – Requires almost no training. Results can be accurately interpreted at a glance
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market
Need to know
This is a consumable assay kit, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. It requires a compatible instrument and a meticulous MDx workflow.
This array test kit is capable of a total of 32 reactions.
Up to 16 samples can be processed in a test run. The capacity of the test chamber is four cassettes, each of which has four wells.
All 32 reactions can be consumed in two test runs.
- Works with
This state-of-the-art instrument performs fast, accurate DNA hybridization to identify the presence of a target molecule in a flexible sample size. Benefits include high efficiency, accurate results and low cost. The FTPRO is compatible with GenoFlow array kits.
CapturePRO image capture system
This instrument captures images of DNA analysis from the DiagCor FTPRO flow-through system and converts them into data. Images are transferred to a server for storage, analysis and reporting. This is a cost-effective way of managing and archiving large volumes of data from DNA-based testing and screening.
FTPRO Auto System is an automatic flow-through hybridization device. This platform adopts the patented flow-through hybridization technology in addition to its automatic operation. Its sophisticated design drastically improves the quality of testing and diagnostic experience.
A key component in medium resolution DNA analysis, this flow-through hybridization device considerably speeds specimen throughput.
