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
- 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.
EU: For in vitro Diagnostic Use.
