Strepb carrot broth for group b strep detection in pregnant women
StrepB Carrot Broth™ is a unique one-step method for screening pregnant women for the presence of Group B Streptococcus.
This screening test is an improvement over conventional methods, by increasing sensitivity, decreasing turnaround time, while lowering labor and material cost. Easy color change read-out. If an orange to red color develops, Strep B is present. Positive results can be reported as early as 6 hours after inoculation. For positives, there is no need for further subculturing or testing.
Lower cost when compared to the LIM Broth method. Carrot Broth™ was found to be more sensitive than the LIM Broth and Granada Agar Plate methods, and even PCR! Negative cultures from StrepB Carrot Broth™ can be subbed to a GBS Detect Plate (cat. no. A300) to easily find non-hemolytic strains of GBS.For more information on StrepB Carrot Broth™ visit www.HardyDiagnostics.com
