The Check-Direct CPE, our real-time PCR kit for detection of carbapenemases, is now compatible with two further real-time PCR systems.

The validated platforms currently include:

  • ABI 7500
  • CFX96TM
  • LightCycler® 480 I&II
  • Rotor-Gene Q


The assay can be performed directly from rectal or perianal swabs or from culture, following DNA extraction.

Check-Direct CPE detects KPC, OXA-48 and VIM/NDM with a limit of detection of less than 5 copies per PCR reaction.
