Simplified and easy-to-use testing Rosco Diagnostica acknowledges the increasing need for detection of resistance mechanisms. In order to supply our customers/users with a convenient system for detection, assembled kits with disc diffusion tablets are available.
BETA - LACTAMASES
Rapid Colorimetric Kits (15 min-1 hour)
Rosco Diagnostica Rapid colorimetric Kits have the following advantages compared to competitors:
More rapid results
No reagent preparation needed
Stable crystalline imipenem
Simple and fast procedure 5 min/test
Reduced amounts of lysis buffer
Detect new genes (compared to PCR)
Phenotypic Methods (18 hours)
Why phenotypic methods? Phenotypic methods are useful for detection of beta-lactamases. They are cheap and easy to perform and interpret. Molecular techniques, on the contrary, are expensive, require significant expertise and do not identify novel and emerging resistance genes or even slightly structurally modified genes.
The kits are complete with ready-to-use cartridges of the necessary combined Neo-Sensitabs™ or Diatabs™ and a guide to their use.
