Staph Latex Tests

Product Description

This staph latex test is a slide agglutination assay for the qualitative detection of coagulase (both clumping factor and protein A) to identify Staphylococcus aureus to the exclusion of other species of staphylococci. For use on pure culture samples suspected of being S. aureus. It detects methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains that produce clumping factor and protein A. All testing materials needed to perform the test are included in each kit.

Designed for 45-second, simple-to-interpret slide test results. Color-coded controls with dropper tip vials included in the kit. Can be used on live cultures from 5% sheep blood agar plates. 100% correlation with tube coagulase test. Shown to correlate 91% in one study1 and 100% in another study2 with the tube coagulase test. Storage requirement:
2 to 8°C. Shelf life of up to 12 months (from date of manufacture).
