  • Application Area: detection of antimicrobial resistance genes

"The Streck ARM-D multiplex PCR kit is able to detect 6 different and critical OXA gene families. For our lab, it is important to be able to detect OXA genes common in Acinetobacter baumannii. The PCR kit sold and designed by Streck makes this test compatible with their other ARM-D beta lactamase detection PCR kits. The PCR conditions are all similar and can be run on one 96-well plate. The enzyme mix is ready to use and makes the master mix quick and easy to set up. Additionally, the PCR itself is highly sensitive and only takes about a half hour to run."

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for your continued use of the Streck ARM-D Kits in your Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance work. We appreciate your confidence in using both the Beta-Lactamase and OXA kits that provide the AR gene variant coverage you need. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve these kits.

The ARM-D Kit, OXA is part of a family of comprehensive, multiplex real-time PCR kits that detect over 1,000 antimicrobial resistance (AMR) gene variants from 26 different gene target families. Streck ARM-D Kits provide a rapid detection strategy for monitoring β-lactam antibiotic resistance. With these kits, your lab can improve surveillance, aid antibiotic stewardship programs and support infection control programs. These kits have a high degree of sensitivity and specificity, providing you accurate, reliable results. Every kit includes positive controls for each gene target to monitor analytical process as well as an endogenous internal control (16SrRNA gene) to reduce false negatives due to PCR inhibition, DNA degradation or poor extraction. 

All Streck ARM-D kits are compatible with most 4-channel real-time thermal cyclers. An amplification protocol and analysis guide are available for the following instruments: Applied Biosystems™ 7500 Fast and 7500 Fast Dx, QuantStudio™ 7Flex, Bio-Rad CFX96 Touch™ and QIAGEN Rotor-Gene® Q. 

Features 

  • Detects over 340 allelic variants in the OXA-23, OXA-24/40, OXA-48, OXA-51, OXA-58 and OXA-143 gene families 
  • Compatible with most 4-channel real-time PCR thermal cyclers 
  • Protocol can be completed in less than one hour  
  • Contains positive controls for each gene target  
  • Includes a premixed 2X master mix (DNA Polymerase, dNTPs, MgCl2 and reaction buffer) 

Benefits 

  • Detects gene variants not covered by cartridge-based kits 
  • Identifies resistance mechanisms before susceptibility results are available 
  • High degree of sensitivity and specificity ensures reliable and accurate results 
  • Reduced cost per sample compared to cartridge-based methods 
  • For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
