Group B Streptococcus (GBS), also known as Streptococcus agalactiae, is a pathogen causing perinatal and neonatal infection. It can cause chorioamnitis of pregnant women, lead to abortion, premature rupture of membranes and intrauterine infection, can also lead to newborn pneumonia, meningitis, sepsis and so on. This kit contains human internal reference to ensure the effectiveness of the whole process from sample collection, transportation, nucleic acid extraction to PCR amplification, and the sample contains endogenous inhibitors and exogenous inhibitors such as blood (containing 130-185 g/L hemoglobin and 4.0-10.0×109 /L white blood cells), cervical mucus, etc. It has no obvious influence on the detection result.
Fast and stable:One-step PCR can be used for rapid qualitative detection of 96 samples within 1h.
Strong applicability: Suitable for anal swab specimens or vaginal swab specimens.
High sensitivity: Three different batches of reagents were used for testing, with the detection sensitivity up to 200 copies/mL.
Strong specificity: There is no cross reaction with many common pathogens with the same infection site or similar infection symptoms, such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, cytomegalovirus, etc.
High accuracy: Reference test results: positive coincidence rate is100%, negative coincidence rate is 100%.
