Pathogen Identification Kits

Microgen™ Bacillus ID

Identifies 23 mesophilic species belonging to the genus Bacillus and relate genera associated with food and beverage spoilage and food poisoning. This identification system comprises 24 standardized microwell biochemical substrates specifically selected...

Gram Negative (GN) ID

Identifies the complete range of Enterobacteriaceae and other non-fastidious, oxidase positive and negative, gram negative bacilli. The GN-ID system comprises two separate microwell strips, the GN-A microwell strip and the GN-B microwell strip.

Listeria ID

Identifies the 6 recognized species of Listeria. Employs 12 standardized microwell biochemical substrates, including an in-well haemolysin test. 18-24 hour results from single colony isolated on selective or non-selective media.

Campylobacter Latex Agglutination Kit

A latex agglutination confirmation test for the presence of Campylobacter spp on solid media or in enrichment broths. These assays are designed to provide simple, one step identification / confirmation of Campylobacter.

Salmonella Latex Agglutination Kit

A latex agglutination confirmation test for the presence of Salmonella spp on solid media from clinical and food samples. Immediate results, accurate enough to screen positives from 24 hour enrichment broths. Detects motile and non motile strains.

Listeria Latex Agglutination Kit

A latex agglutination presumptive test for the presence of Listeria spp in enrichment broths or confirm colonies on agar plate media. Immediate presumptive results, Microgen Listeria Latex may be used in conjunction with biochemical tests.

C. Difficile Latex Agglutination Kit

The test latex particles in Microgen® C. difficile are coated with antibodies specific for C. difficile somatic antigens, resulting in a highly specific test with a high predictive negative value.

Legionella Latex Agglutination Kit

The test latexes used in Microgen® Legionella are coated with immunoglobulins which have been specially processed to minimise cross reactions with potentially cross reacting organisms, eliminating the need for a control latex.
