VIASURE Real Time PCR Detection Kits

CTX, TEM, SHV & mcr


VIASURE CTX, TEM, SHV & mcr Real Time PCR Detection Kit is a real time PCR assay designed for the qualitative detection and differentiation of family-specific CTX-M, TEM and SHV genes in gram-negative bacteria associated to resistances in blood culture and swab samples such as biopsy, gluteal swabs, ulcer swabs, wound swabs, conjunctive swab, tongue swab, joint fluid swab, oral swabs, hair swabs, perineal swab, urethral swab, abscess swabs from patients with suspect of bacterial infection and/or multi-resistant infection or colonization and swabs for epidemiological control such as nasal, pharyngeal, rectal swabs, axillary swabs, inguinal swabs, epithelial swabs, colostomy swabs, stoma swab, BAS, BAL and sputum specimens by their healthcare professional (HCP).

This test is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of family-specific CTX-M, TEM and SHV genes in gram-negative bacteria in clinical samples in both, surveillance and timely identification of antibiotic-resistant infections and colonization, in combination with clinical and epidemiological risk factors.

DNA is extracted from clinical specimens amplified using real time PCR and detected using fluorescent reporter dye probes specific for CTX-M, TEM and SHV genes resistances.
