S. aureus/CNS PNA FISH®

PF_CA-CG_120, S. aureus/CNS PNA FISH®Rapid identification of Staphylococcus aureus and Coagulase-Negative Staphylococci from positive blood cultures

S. aureus/CNS PNA FISH provides rapid identification of S. aureus and Coagulase-Negative Staphylococci (CNS) directly from GPCC*-positive blood cultures in just 90 minutes. The test enables microbiology labs to report S. aureus vs. CNS results 1-2 days sooner than with conventional methods to help clinicians ensure early, appropriate antimicrobial therapy for patients with S. aureus bacteremia while avoiding unnecessary therapy for patients with CNS contaminated blood cultures.
