Group A Streptococcus (GAS), also known as Streptococcus pyogens, is a common Gram-positive pathogen, which is the main pathogen causing acute tonsillitis, pharyngitis and scarlet fever in children. Some strains can cause serious complications such as rheumatic fever/rheumatic valvular heart disease and acute glomerulonephritis. GAS is one of the pathogens that can cause the most kinds of human diseases so far, and it is also one of the most common respiratory pathogens. It is easily confused with pharyngitis caused by mycoplasma pneumoniae and respiratory viruses in clinical practice. Accurate diagnosis of the causative agent is an important condition for correct treatment of the disease.
Bioer has developed a novel Real-Time PCR kit for the detection and identification of Group A Streptococcus. In addition, the kit also adds human internal control, monitoring the whole process of specimen collection, transportation, nucleic acid extraction, PCR amplification, to ensure the effectiveness of the whole process.
