Strep B Carrot Broth™ One-Step, for the detection of hemolytic Group B Strep in pregnant women, no reaction tile required, 16x100mm tube, 6ml fill, compatible with BD Innova, 100 tubes per box, by Hardy Diagnostics
Strep B Carrot Broth™ One-Step is a selective and differential medium which is intended for the detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) from anovaginal specimens collected from pregnant women. The medium is used as an aid in the qualitative determination of GBS colonization in pregnant women. The color change reaction from white to orange is representative of a positive result for presence of hemolytic GBS.
Our one-step test is an improvement over conventional methods by increasing sensitivity, decreasing turn-around time, and lowering overall cost. All components are now included in the color change test, so the use of additional tiles is no longer necessary. Positives require no follow up testing!
Product is compatible with the Innova™ automated inoculation machine.
Advantages of Strep B Carrot Broth™ One-Step:
Easy one-step process! Place sample directly in the tube. Adding tiles is no longer necessary.
Easy read-out. Development of any orange to red color whatsoever, indicates a positive result.
For positives, there is no need for further sub-culturing or testing.
Lower cost when compared to the LIM broth method.
Can be used with liquid and gel-based transport systems.
Carrot Broth media is available in multiple formats that work on many automated inoculating machines,such as the WASP® or BD Kiestra™
