Principle: For the detection of carbapenemases
Suitability: Antimicrobial resistance
Capital equipment required: NO
NG-Test® CARBA 5 is the only rapid, multiplex, phenotypic test capable of detecting KPC, OXA-48-like, VIM, IMP, and NDM carbapenemases produced by Enterobacterales and P. aeruginosa.
- Cost effective - Per test, NG-Test® CARBA 5 is more economical than molecular methods.
- Accurate - NG-Test® CARBA 5, unlike molecular methods, detects the gene expression which can be crucial to aiding therapeutic decisions.
