  • Descripción del producto
    The Verigene Gram-Positive Blood Culture Nucleic Acid Test (BC-UP) performed using the sample-to-result Verigene System is a qualitative, multiplexed in vitro diagnostic test for the simultaneous detection and identification of potentially pathogenic gram-positive bacteria which may cause bloodstream infection (BSI). BC-UP is performed directly on blood culture bottles identified as positive by a continuous monitoring blood culture system and which contain gram-positive bacteria. BC-UP detects and identifies the following bacterial genera and species: Staphylococcus spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus lugdunensis, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, Streptococcus spp., Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus anginosus, group and Listeria spp. || In addition, BC-UP detects the mnecA resistance marker, inferring mecA-mediated, methicillin resistance, and the vanA and vanB resistance markers, inferring vanA/vanB-mediated vancomycin resistance. In mixed growth, BC-UP does not specifically attribute van-mediated vancomycin resistance to either E. faecalis or E. faecium, or mecA-mediated methicillin resistance to either S. aureus or S. epidermidis. || BC-UP is indicated for use in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings to, aid in the diagnosis of bacterial bloodstream infections; however, is not to be used to, monitor these infections. Sub-culturing of positive blood cultures is necessary to recover, organisms for susceptibility testing, identification of organisms not detected by BC-UP, differentiation of mixed growth, association of antimicrobial resistance marker genes to a specific organism, or for epidemiological typing.
