NEW - Rapid Test for Legionella Culture Identification
Vircell extends its range of rapid tests with a new reference for Legionella culture identification.
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.
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.
