The Streck ARM-D Kit, TEM/SHV/GES 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 to improve AMR surveillance, aid antibiotic stewardship programs and support infection control programs. This kit detects over 350 allelic variants in the following extended-spectrum β-Lactamase gene families: TEM, SHV, GES.
Streck ARM-D kits have a high degree of sensitivity and specificity for 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.
The ARM-D TEM/SHV/GES kit is an open-platform multiplex kit validated on the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast and is compatible with most 4-channel real-time thermal cyclers. The kit allows for batch testing, increasing throughput for high volume testing and reducing cost per sample compared to cartridge-based methods.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. A CE version of this kit is also available.
