Santa Maria, California (PRWEB) October 03, 2017
Hardy Diagnostics, an FDA licensed and ISO certified biomedical manufacturer, is proud to announce the release of Strep B Carrot Broth One-Step™ for the detection of beta-hemolytic strains of Group B Streptococcus in pregnant women. This newly released version of Strep B Carrot Broth™ does not require the addition of a reaction tile like in the original Carrot Broth™.
This easy, color changing test has proven to save lab technicians time by simplifying the process of the testing for Strep B, increasing sensitivity, decreasing turn-around time, and lowering overall cost. With the new One-Step color changing test, lab technicians will save even more time through the elimination of the reaction tile step.
Carrot Broth™ media was found to be more sensitive than the LIM Broth, Granada agar plate methods, and even PCR. In house studies showed a sensitivity of 99% at 102 CFU/ ml, and specificity of 100%. Data is available upon request.
