Microarray identification of Carbapanemase, ESB and AMPC genes.

The clinically prevalent carbapenemase, ESBL and AmpC genes in a single test

Simultaneous detection using up to 100 specific resistance markers

High specificity and sensitivity for all species

Accuracy down to a single base pair allows distinguishing ESBL from non-ESBL for TEM and SHV

Automated analysis of results

Software database of results improves traceability and simplifies data management

How it works

1 Identification
  • The probe arms will be ligated together only if they match exactly to the template.
  • A single nucleotide mismatch will prevent ligation of the probe arms.
2 Amplification
  • Only ligated probes are amplified (and labeled).
3 Detection
  • Different probes will hybridize to different positions on the microarray through the ZIP region of the probe.
  • Hybridized amplification products are visualized by colorimetric detection.
4 Analysis
  • An image of the microarray, contained in an Array Tube, is generated using the Check-Points Tube Reader.
  • The E-Ads software automatically analyzes the presence or absence of carbapenemases, AmpCs and ESBLs as well as the resistance genes present.
