BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus pneumoniae (CE-IVD)





Background: Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococci) is a Gram-positive, alpha-hemolytic bacterium which can cause pneumonia (community-acquired pneumonia, CAP), bronchitis, otitis media, meningitis and sepsis. Pneumococci commonly colonize the upper human respiratory tract and can also be found in healthy persons (40% und 70%). Transmission occurs through close contact with contaminated respiratory droplets. The risk of a pneumococcal infection is much increased in persons with a weak immune system.

BactoReal® Kit Streptococcus pneumoniae is an in vitro diagnostic test, based on real-time PCR, for the detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae. 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
