Range for Urinary Tract Infections Tests Extended

Dec 20 2005

Oxoid Limited has extended its range of diagnostic tests available for the detection of urinary tract infections with the addition of RapID? SS/u (Site Specific urine). This easy-to-use enzymatic test panel is able to identify the major urinary tract pathogens, including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., Enterobacter spp., Enterococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp. and Candida albicans, within just 2 hours.

The RapID? SS/u test panel incorporates a carefully selected series of biochemical tests directed towards urinary tract pathogens. As RapID? SS/u detects specific constitutive enzymes and is not dependent on the growth of the organism, the panel can be incubated aerobically without the need for oil overlay. This saves on both time and materials. The novel inoculation method allows each test well to be inoculated simultaneously, simplifying the procedure and allowing further time savings.

Upon completion of the test, identifications are made using the user-friendly, Windows®-based ERIC® software (Electronic RapID Compendium), which ranks organism identifications by probability. Accessory tests and methods are offered to resolve any identification overlaps and identification reports can be saved or printed, with reporting options that allow the user to track identification patterns and organism trends.
