LightCycler® MRSA Advanced
The LightCycler® MRSA Advanced Test is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection of nasal colonisation with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to aid in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in healthcare settings. The test is performed with nasal swab specimens from patients suspected of colonisation, uses swab extraction and mechanical lysis for specimen preparation followed by real-time PCR for the amplification and detection of MRSA DNA
The test is not intended to diagnose MRSA infections nor to guide or monitor treatment for MRSA infections.
