Staph ID Detection Kit

Microgen® Staph-ID has been developed for the identification of commonly encountered Staphylococcus spp. isolated from clinical and veterinary samples. These bacteria, although commensal, are recognised as potential human pathogens e.g. S. aureus and S. epidermidis. Coagulase negative Staphylococcus spp. are common colonisers of prosthetic valves and in-dwelling catheters.
