NEW - Rapid Test for Legionella Culture Identification
| | Vircell extends its range of rapid tests with a new reference for
Legionella culture identification.
| | * Performance results presented at LEGIONELLA 2009 (7th International Conference. Paris, France).
VIRapid® LEGIONELLA CULTURE enables a rapid qualitative detection and identification of the main Legionella
groups of clinical importance (Legionella
genus, L. pneumophila
serogroup 1 and L. pneumophila
serogrups 1-15) in a single assay with multitest format. The test can be performed on bacterial culture samples, either from human or environmental origin.
VIRapid® LEGIONELLA CULTURE is a fast, effective and economical alternative to processing positive cultures with a simple protocol and reading time of just 30 minutes. Further features of this test are as follow:
- It allows detection and identification of groups with higher clinical interest in one product (multitests format).
- It detects all the Legionella genus species.
- Being an immunocromatographic test, it provides a more objective reading than a latex agglutination.
- All the necessary reagents are included in the kit. Product control line on each device.
- Competitive price.
- Based on specific and highly purified MAb (conjugates and lines) to eliminate cross reactivity and maximize the specificity of the test.
- 99% sensitivity and 100% specificity average performance*.
- Valid for cultures from environmental and clinical samples.
- Storage at room temperature.
- CE marked (IVD).
