We point out that only the instructions contained within the test kits are authorized for use.
For the qualitative and quantitative measurement of antibodies to Anti-Streptolysin-O (ASO) in human serum to confirm recent or on-going infection with beta-hemolytic streptococci; support diagnosing rheumatic fever and poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis in the presence of clinical symptoms; to distinguish between rheumatic fever and rheumatoid arthritis when joint pains are present
For the qualitative detection of Staphylococcus aureus in cultures from Sorbitol MacConkey Agar
S. aureus can cause a range of illnesses from minor skin infections, such as pimples, impetigo, boils, cellulitis folliculitis, furuncles, carbuncles, scalded skin syndrome and abscesses, to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis, osteomyelitis endocarditis, Toxic shock syndrome (TSS), and septicemia. One of the most common causes of nosocomial infections, often causing postsurgical wound infections.
For the detection of Streptococcal groups A, B, C, D, F and G from culture
Group A is S. pyogenes causing streptococcal pharyngitis ("strep throat"), acute rhwumatic fever, scarlet fever, scarlet fever, acute glomerulonephritis and necrotizing fasciitis, group B is S. agalactiae causes pneumonia and meningitis in neonates and the elderly, with occasional systemic bacteremia, group B is S. agalactiae causes pneumania and meningitis in neonates and the elderly, with occasional systemic bacteremia, group C Includes S. equi and S. zooepidemicus causing infections in several species of mammals and chicken, group D stains include Streptococcus bovis commonly found in the alimentary tract of cows, sheep, and other ruminants but it is a causative agent of endocarditis, and, more rarely, neonatal septicemia and meningitis in human and Streptococcus equinus.group G involves Streptococcus canis which is typically found on animals but can cause infection in humans
D-Dimer Latex is used for the rapid qualitative or semi-quantitative detection of circulating derivatives of cross-linked fibrin degradation products (XL-FDP) in human plasma
For the qualitative and semi-quantitative measurement of Rheumatoid Factor (RF) in human serum
