Thermo Scientific Extends Range of Rapid Identification Tests
The wide selection of identification tests available from Thermo Scientific has been extended to include the rapid and convenient RapID range. These easy to use test panels provide accurate and reliable identifications of a broad range of micro-organisms in just four hours and in as little as two hours for selected organisms.
Each panel incorporates a carefully selected series of biochemical tests directed towards a particular group of organisms. Unlike some alternative methods, the RapID range is not dependent on the growth of the organisms but detects specific constitutive enzymes. As a result, every panel can be incubated aerobically, without the need for an oil overlay, saving on both time and materials. Furthermore, the novel inoculation method allows each test well to be inoculated simultaneously, simplifying the procedure and allowing further time savings.
For a full list of organisms that can be detected using the RapID range and for further product information, please contact Carlene Simmons [details above]; visit the Thermo Scientific website at www.oxoid.com or click on the link below.
