The rapidSTRIPE Pertussis Assay
is a complete, highly sensitive system for detecting Bordetella pertussis in human sample material (nasopharyngeal or throat swabs). The kit contains the reagents needed for manually extracting DNA using proven Spin Filter technology, as well as solutions for the amplification/hybridization reaction and accessories for final detection using sensitive Lateral Flow Strips. The appearance of a test line confirms the presence of pertussis-positive amplification products. The strips also include a control line indicating whether the strips are working properly.
The kit is CE-IVD certified, which makes it approved for human diagnostic applications.
