Product Overview

Strep A Test on QuikRead go

Sensitivity 83%; Specificity 97%

When a patient presents with an acute sore throat, it can be difficult to differentiate, based on symptoms to determine whether the infection has a bacterial or viral aetiology.

Using a throat swab taken during consultation, the QuikRead go Strep A test can be used to determine if a sore throat is caused by Strep A (Streptococcus pyogenes), identifying those patients who need treatment with antibiotics and therefore supporting #antimicrobialstewardship.
