The Streck ARM-D Kit, ampC 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 surveillance, aid antibiotic stewardship programs and support infection control programs. The ARM-D ampC kit detects over 200 variants in 6 clinically relevant resistance gene families and can differentiate plasmid-mediated ampC β-lactamase resistance from chromosomal resistance.
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 ampC kit is an open-platform multiplex kit 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. 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.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. A CE version of this kit is also available.
