The advent of rapid diagnostic tests has made it possible to diagnose infectious diseases very fast. This is like the traditional use of cultures and serology that took so much time and was ineffective for some resistance bacteria.
With rapid diagnostic tests, you will not only have your results fast, but these methods are effective for all microorganisms. Our tests are grouped into:
• Antigen detection
• Molecular detection
• Rapid biochemical tests
• Direct microscopy
There are also several other methods available for microbiological stains. These stains are used to detect different resistance bacteria, such as Mycobacterium. There are also tests for resistance bacteria for infections that resist antibiotics.
Antigen detection involves measuring antigens or antibodies in a bid to determine whether an individual is responding to immunization or infection. This is a type of immunoassay, and there are three types of antigen detection; direct, indirect, and competitive. Molecular detection is also known as nucleic acid testing, and it involves several procedures, such as nucleic acid amplification, fingerprinting, and ribotyping among others.
Biochemical tests are a form of screening tests performed on clinical specimens. These tests include leukocyte esterase and nitrite. The test seeks to find granules in blood or urine. There are some special tests for some microorganisms, depending on their nature.
You can get kits for the microbiological tests. Our prepared media works to detect and study different microorganisms to help in the manufacture of drugs and in the treatment of infectious diseases. Some of the kits you can get for these tests include Divided plates, Slides, Tubes, ready-to-use plates, and many more.
You can also get sterilization and disinfection products to keep your lab clean and free of microorganisms. These products are available in different batches, making them ideal for application by labs of all sizes. They are easy to use even for beginners, and you can use different testing methodologies, depending on the resistance bacteria you wish to detect.
