Communicable diseases remain the most common death cause in emerging economies and a huge public health concern in developed countries.

The health services are presented with a significant challenge in terms of diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Effective use of the various diagnostic solutions can significantly improve the detection and control of infectious diseases caused by bacteria. The laboratory procedure must ensure that the information derived from the diagnostic test is reliable and delivered in a timely manner.

Diagnostic solutions in clinical bacteriology

Although the media culture is still the most established method in clinical bacteriology, there are a rising number of diagnostic bacteriology laboratories that deploy commercial IVD kits in their procedures. The validated, reliable and rapid solutions offer a great advancement over the labour- and time-consuming culture method, in particular with respect to specificity and sensitivity.

The bacteriology test portfolio from R-Biopharm offers a wide range of solutions that meets the diagnostic needs of small to large laboratories. The technologies available include:

  • Real-time PCR test kits suitable for commonly used real-time PCR instruments
  • Enzyme immunoassays validated for automation platforms
  • Rapid tests in a form of a cassette
  • Microspot arrays
  • Immunofluorescence assays (IFA)

You may choose from a variety of systems to test for a wide a range of parameters including Legionella, Mycoplasma, Bordetella and Clostridium difficile.
