GREAT!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:ER patients

"The Alere i is user friendly and has quality results, consistent with the rapid Ag kit WITH culture follow up. The rapid Ag kit was failing to capture roughly 10% of the positive gpAStreps which were grown in culture later. The Alere i detected those 10% we were missing."
