Microbiology To overcome the challenge of reading grey latex colour enhanced latex makes the results much easier to visualise. With this method the agglutinates change colour and migrate to the periphery of the circle. In addition the background colour changes, enhancing the contrast between negative and positive results. ■■Kits come complete with disposable slides, sampling pipettes and controls ■■No sample dilution required ■■Enhanced readability ■■Available in a range of pack sizes to suit varying workloads 328 Mycology - CrAg Assay Pricing and Online Ordering at www.alphalabs.co.uk n freephone order 0800 387732 n buy online at www.alphalabs.co.uk Colour Enhanced Latex Agglutination Tests Colour Enhanced Latex Agglutination Tests Catalogue Number Description Pack Size ASOCE-50 Antistreptolysin O (ASO) 50 tests ASOCE-100 Antistreptolysin O (ASO) 100 tests IM-25 Immuno/Colour (Infectious Mononucleosis) 25 tests IM-50 Immuno/Colour (Infectious Mononucleosis) 50 tests IM-100 Immuno/Colour (Infectious Mononucleosis) 100 tests MCLX-25 Mono/lex (Infectious Mononucleosis) 25 tests MCLX-50 Mono/lex (Infectious Mononucleosis) 50 tests MCLX-100 Mono/lex (Infectious Mononucleosis) 100 tests STP-50 Staphacol (Staphylococcus aureus) 50 tests STP-100 Staphacol (Staphylococcus aureus) 100 tests STREP-50 Strepacol (Strep A) 50 tests STREP-100 Strepacol (Strep A) 100 tests Immunostics Antistreptolysin O (ASO) Used to measure antibodies against streptolysin O, a substance produced by Group A Streptococcus bacteria. Infectious Mononucleosis (IM) These tests detect the Heterophile Antibodies associated with IM in both serum and plasma. Staphylococcus aureus Detects coagulase and/or Protein A characteristics associated with Staphylococcus aureus colonies obtained from culture. Formulation of reagent will react with either or both of these two characteristics. Streptococcus A Offers qualitative and semi-quantitative detection of antibodies to Streptococcal extracellular antigens in serum, plasma and peripheral blood. Cryptococcus Lateral Flow Assay Mycology The assay represents a dramatic improvement on other methods and features. n Simple lateral flow test in dipstick-sandwich format n Delivers a clear result in 10 minutes, no sample pre-treatment Cryptococcosis is an opportunistic infection caused by fungi of the genus Cryptococcus. Individuals with an impaired cell mediated immune system are at particular risk of infection, and the disease is especially prevalent among those infected with HIV who have developed AIDS. Traditional methods of diagnosing Cryptococcosis can be technically complex, require sample pre-treatment and can take an hour or more to deliver results. The Cryptococcus antigen (CrAg) Lateral Flow Assay has been developed to overcome these issues. It is an immunochromatographic test for detection of the capsular polysaccharide antigens of Cryptococcus species in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Cryptococcus Lateral Flow Assay n More sensitive than any other CrAg assay n Offers qualitative or semi quantitative detection The test provides an unequivocal positive or negative result for the presence/absence of CrAg in serum or CSF. As such it makes diagnosis of Cryptococcosis rapid, simple and reliable.
