Campylobacter Latex Confirmation Assay (Microscreen)

Product Code: M46

A rapid test for the confirmatory identification of enteropathogenic, thermophilic Campylobacter grown on selective agar. Campylobacter gastro-enteritis is most prevalent in young children, but outbreaks are also common in adults. In temperate climates the incidence of Campylobacter gastro-enteritis peaks in summer and early autumn, whereas in tropical climates peak incidences may occur in the cooler months. Campylobacter infection can be effectively treated with antibiotics but in the majority of cases, due to the length of time required by traditional detection methods, the acute phase has passed by the time a laboratory diagnosis is communicated to the physician.

 Microgen Campylobacter is a rapid, easy-to-use test which can be reliably performed on selective agar colonies. Microgen Campylobacter can therefore reduce the time taken to produce a laboratory diagnosis and improve patient prognosis. Our test:

• Detects Campylobacter from solid selective media

• Permits the early detection of Campylobacter gastro-enteritis enabling appropriate therapy to commence immediately, thereby improving patient prognosis

• Is highly specific so that a presumptive identification can be reliably formed on the basis of the Microgen® test alone.

 Our Microgen Campylobacter Rapid test detects:

  • C. jejuni
  • C. jejuni subsp. Doylei
  • C. coli
  • C. upsaliensis
  • C. laridis
  • C. fetus
