MRSA Detection - Double Quick!

Genoquik for MRSA

Mast is pleased to present the new GenoQuick® MRSA kit from Hain Life Sciences offering rapid, cost effective detection directly from patient specimens in only 2.5 hours.

The kit utilises MRSA specific DNA sequences in the Staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SSCmec types 1-V) to enable direct testing without the need for time-consuming culture. A simple dipstick procedure accelerates the detection process with results being generated as an obvious banding pattern on the membrane strips.

The presence of both amplification and conjugate controls gives the user confidence in reporting the presence of MRSA from a patient specimen to a sensitivity of 10-15 cfu.

No elaborate equipment is required, and the test can easily be incorporated into a routine diagnostic laboratory. The kit is available in either a 12 test or 48 test format making it suitable for both small volume users and higher throughput laboratories.
