Staphylococcus screen quick test
(OSOM Strep A Test)
The OSOM Strep A Test is intended for the qualitative detection of Group A Streptococcal antigen from throat swabs or confirmation of presumptive Group A Streptococcal colonies recovered from culture.
Group A Streptococcus is one of the most important causes of acute upper respiratory tract infections. Early diagnosis and treatment of Group A Streptococcal pharyngitis has been shown to reduce the severity of symptoms and further complications such as rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis. Conventional identifications procedures for Group A Streptococcus from throat swabs involve the isolation and subsequent identification of viable pathogens by techniques that require 24 to 48 hours or longer. The OSOM Strep A Test detects either viable or nonviable organisms directly from a throat swab, providing results within 5 minutes.
