GenoQuestTM GBS qPCR Assay

The GenoQuestTM GBS qPCR Assay is designed for qualitative identification of group B Streptococcus via real-time PCR technique.

What is it?

Highly sensitive real time PCR assay
Highly sensitive detection of GBS nucleic acids
Detection as low as 30 copies DNA per reaction
Compatible with various real time PCR machines
Results in 2 hours (after extraction)


Who is it for?

The GenoQuestTM GBS qPCR Assay is intended for in vitro diagnostic use with the appropriate clinical laboratory settings, safety standards and properly trained personnel.

It has been validated using urine, vaginal swab, and liquid-based cytology (LBC) specimen.

Why is it different?

This kit provides a simple, rapid and highly sensitive method to detect GBS.
The ready-to-use reagent is compatible with various real time PCR machines and delivers results in less than 2 hours.
