StaphTEX™ Blue, a rapid latex agglutination test for Staphylococcus aureus, blue beads on a white card (sold separately) for easiest read-out, 1000 tests, by Hardy Diagnostics

Produces clear and reliable results when testing for Staphylococcus aureus. The plasma coated blue latex beads create the easiest read-out ever! Positives rapidly agglutinate the blue beads on a white background, while negatives remain consistently smooth.

The StaphTEX™ Blue kit tests for both the Clumping Factor and Protein A found in S. aureus. Clumping Factor is detected in both the free and bound form. The easy procedure involves placing several colonies within the raised circle on a white latex agglutination card (Cat. no. PL092HD) sold separately. A drop of the blue latex solution is added and mixed with four inch flat-end mixing sticks (Cat. no. PL091HD) sold separately. Positives begin to clump immediately. The entire procedure takes less than one minute. Liquid controls are included.
