Minimal wastage

Antimicrobial Resistance infections are increasing and these infections can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. 700,000 people die every year globally and 25,000 in Europe. The Una Health NG Biotech Antimicrobial Resistance Tests help us quickly identify and reduce infections.

NG tests from NG Biotech developed in collaboration with the French CEA, are a new range of rapid tests for Antimicrobial Resistance detection from cultured colonies. These cutting edge antimicrobial resistance tests enable rapid detection in just 15 minutes with results you can trust.

NG-Test CARBA 5 for rapid dectection of Carbapenemases

Performance Characteristics:

The detection limits were determined using purified recombinant enzymes:

KPC 600pg/mL
OXA 300pg/mL
VIM 300pg/mL
IMP 200pg/mL
NDM 150pg/mL


Variants detected by NG-Test CARBA 5:

Type NDM: NDM-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-11-19

Type KPC: KPC-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-12-14-23-28-39

Type IMP: IMP-1-2-4-5-6-7-8-10-11-13-14-15-16-18-19-22-26-29-31-37-39-46-47-56-58-61-63-71-79
