BactoReal® Kit Neisseria meningitidis (CE-IVD)





Background: Neisseria meningitidis is a Gram-negative bacterium causing meningitis and septicemia. There are 13 clinically significant serogroups, which are classified according to the antigenic structure of their polysaccharide capsule. Five serogroups (A, B, C, Y and W135) are responsible for virtually all cases of the disease. Serogroup B is the predominant one. The capsular transport protein (ctrA) gene is unique to N. meningitidis and can be found in all meningococcal serogroups.

BactoReal® Kit Neisseria meningitidis is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on real-time PCR, for the detection of Neisseria meningitidis. The included internal DNA positive control system can be used as DNA extraction and PCR inhibition control.

Sensitivity and specificity: See manual or product description
