Clinical Diagnostics

Clinical Diagnostics

The clinical detection of pathogenic bacteria. The tests are based on the polymerase chain reaction and allow in vitro tests for qualitative and quantitative diagnosis of bacteria in clinical materials.

In many clinical settings, accurate and rapid diagnostic is important for an efficient patient management. Diagnosis of acute infections is usually based on culture and serology, known to be difficult by means of insensitivity, delayed detection and poor specificity.

By utilising the highly-sensitive PCR technology and their unique features, all these drawbacks can be avoided and efficient testing becomes available. Direct testing with the PCR detection kits is very rapid, certain and very effective. Detailed clinical studies confirm the high specificity and sensitivity of these tests, permitting early identification of clinically significant infections. By using the supplied internal control, false-negative results (due to inhibition of the reaction by the sample matrix) can be excluded individually for each sample.
