QuickVue In-Line Strep A Test - CLIA Waived 25/Box

The QuickVue Dipstick Strep A Test detects Group A Streptococcal antigen directly from patient throat swab specimens, or confirmation of presumptive Group A Streptococcal colonies recovered from culture and is used as an aid in the diagnosis of Group A Streptococcal infection.

Group A Streptococcus, or Group A Strep, is a bacterium commonly found in the throat or on the skin. The bacteria can cause a range of infections from relatively mild sore throats and skin infections,to life threatening invasive disease. Group A infections can usually be treated with antibiotics and are spread by direct person to person contact. The QuickVue Dipstick Strep A test is intended for the rapid qualitative detection of Group A Streptococcal antigen from throat swabs or confirmation of presumptive Group A Streptococcal colonies recovered from culture. The Dipstick format allows for an“off-line” extraction while maintaining its simplistic procedure, allowing the test to be granted CLIA-waiver. The two-colored endpoint and accuracy at the low levels of colony count make the QuickVue Dipstick Strep A test one of the most accurate and cost effective tests on the market today.
