Griepgolf? Vraag nu de 8 minuten Influenza sneltest aan!

Griep (Influenzavirus) is een aandoening van de luchtwegen veroorzaakt door Influenza A & B. Omdat deze virussen elk jaar verschillen bestaat er geen standaard vaccin voor. Griep kan erg lastig zijn voor de dagelijks functioneren. Het diagnosticeren van griep kan dan ook voordeel hebben voor het vroeg adequaat behandelen en reageren. Aangezien griep zeer besmettelijk is kunnen mensen in de directe omgeving hier ook rekening mee houden. Wanneer er een griepgolf actief is, kan het nuttig zijn om hiervan de diagnose te kunnen stellen. Veelal verwarren patiënten een verkoudheid met het griepvirus.

De Tauns Capilia Flu grieptest zorgt voor een snelle diagnose van zowel Influenza A en/of B. Door middel van een nasopharyngeale swab wordt een monster genomen, van dit monster is na 8 minuten resultaat.  Voor de test zijn geen aparte materialen of apparatuur nodig. Hierdoor biedt de Tauns grieptest de meest eenvoudige en snelle test voor een accurate diagnose.

Point of care influenza A+B test

Unique point-of-care test for Influenza A+B. Easy and fast diagnosis with nasal of pharyngeal swab.

The Capilia™ Flu Neo test will give you a positive or negative result from nasal or pharyngeal swab in 8 minutes. The swab medium can also be used for other Capilia™ tests, such as RSV, hMPV and Adeno. No special instruments or equipment are required.

 

Because the Influenza virus is highly contagious, rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment can have a positive effect on public health. Also, the ability to distinguish between A or B can help physicians to prescribe an appropriate antiviral therapy.

Type A Sensitivity/Specificity: 94,3%/95,4% (From nasal swabs)

Type B Sensitivity/Specificity: 100%/98,7% (From nasal swabs)

 

The Capilia™ Flu Neo, as shown above, is based on an immunochromatography assay using a monoclonal antibody that recognizes influenza virus antigens. When a nasal or pharyngeal swab is taken, the swab medium is applied to the sample area. Result will follow in 8 minutes.

Point-of-care tests from Tauns laboratories

These unique products offer point-of-care diagnostics in minutes for laboratories and general practitioners, using only nasal and pharyngeal swabs as samples.

 

The Capilia™ product line by Tauns laboratories offers fast and sensitive POCT detection of pathogens like Influenza, RSV or hMPV.

Easy-to-use point of care strips, as shown below in the Flu Neo test.

 

  • Rapid test for detecting antigen: Permitting accurate results; simple and easy to use
  • Easy to read Black Line: Adopting the latest nanotechnology,”Platinum-Gold Colloid”
  • Fast test results: Reading time is 3-8 min.
  • Shared use of extraction buffer in Capilia series:  1 sample can be used for 4 types of tests(Flu,Adeno,RSV,hMPV)

 

Other Capilia™ products include Mycoplasma, TB and Strep A.

Lactose intolerance PCR test (LCT 13910C>T)

The patient friendly solution to lactose intolerance testing

The Lactose intolerance is usually tested with a drink containing lactose. After two hours a blood sample will be taken to measure how much glucose is in the blood. If the blood glucose level does not rise, this means that the body is not digesting or absorbing lactose. This way of analyzing the lactose tolerance is very patient unfriendly.

A better solution would be to just take blood sample and run a molecular test. ViennaLab offers a LCT RealFast Assay. This PCR test tests on the LCT 13910C>T mutation.

Unique features of the RealFast Assays

The RealFast Assays from ViennaLab are a great product line. All RealFast assays can be combined in the same thermocylcer. This because the thermocycling program is identical for all RealFast Assays. this way the Lactose intolerance test can be combined with tests like HFE, FV and FII(PTH).

HLA-B27 PCR Test

HLA-B27 is a genetic risk factor for seronegative spondyloarthropathies, such as ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and anterior uveitis.

The HLA-B27 PCR test from Viennalab is known for its high quality but especially for its exceptional speed. The very short PCR program ensures that the results are generated quickly and accurately. All Viennalab PCR tests can also be carried out with the same protocol. This means you do not have to save up your samples from various genetic analysis.  With the RealFast assays you can combine analysis like Haemachromatosis, Factor V leiden, PTH & HLA B27 in one PCR run.

Furthermore, the HLA-B27 PCR test can be combined with a verified fast and low priced DNA isolation kit, which means that the total costs can be kept interesting. More…
