GBS Test

Short description

The GBS Test is an innovative rapid nucleic acid microarray-qPCR diagnostic tool designed for the accurate detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) from vaginal swabs. Designed for use with the FlashDx-1000-E system, it ensures a qualitative analysis of GBS DNA. Each test is streamlined for ease of use with a self-contained cartridge, reducing cross-contamination risks. The targeted amplification of the cfb and sip genes provides precise results, critical for informed clinical decision-making. Stored between 2-8°C, the GBS Test is an essential tool for efficient and reliable GBS detection in various clinical settings.

GBS Test: Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Product Profile

The GBS Test represents a leap forward in molecular diagnostics, providing an nucleic acid microarray-qPCR test for the qualitative detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS). This test is suitable for use in a clinical setting to analyse samples from patients regardless of symptomatic presentation.

Principle of operation: The GBS test utilises an in vitro diagnostic approach with a disposable cartridge designed for single use, containing reagents pre-prepared for the entire workflow from sample introduction to DNA amplification and final detection. The design of the test minimises the risk of cross-contamination, thereby maintaining sample integrity throughout the process.

Focus on genetic detection: Focusing on the cfb and sip gene sequences of Streptococcus agalactiae, the GBS Test is precision engineered to ensure specificity. The inclusion of human RNase P gene components serves as an internal procedural control, underpinning the reliability of the assay from sample processing to signal detection.

The GBS test embodies the precision and efficiency required in modern molecular diagnostics. It is a usefull tool for the rapid detection of GBS, supporting clinical workflows and improving patient care through timely and accurate diagnosis.

Components of the GBS Test

Within each GBS Test kit, users will find individually sealed cartridges and disposable pipettes, the latter to facilitate sample transfer. The cartridges are prepared with all necessary reagents, ensuring readiness for immediate use.
