The most comprehensive PCR test for antibiotic resistance.
Detects 47 resistance genes, spanning 9 antibiotic classes and semi-quantitates 5 pathogens
The Acuitas AMR Gene Panel is a rapid diagnostic test for the detection of antimicrobial resistance genes and the semi-quantitative detection of pathogens. It is a highly multiplexed PCR test with an easy-to-use workflow and reports results in less than 3 hours. Results can be uploaded to the Acuitas Lighthouse for the prediction of antibiotic resistance and for real-time surveillance of AMR threats. It is available for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Resistance Genes Detected, Broad Antibiotic Coverage
Cephalosporins & Carbapenems
*multiple genes/mutations detected
Semi-Quantitative Pathogen Detection
Test directly from urine specimens or quickly confirm antimicrobial resistance using isolates cultured from blood, respiratory, intra-abdominal, skin & soft tissue, or other clinical specimens.
Developed for use with Thermo Fisher Applied Biosystems™ QuantStudio™ 5 Real-Time PCR Instrument and QIAGEN EZ1® Advanced XL DNA Extraction. Results available in less than 3 hours with 20 minutes of hands-on time.
