Overview

Product Description

The QuickVue Dipstick Strep A test allows for the rapid qualitative detection of Group A Streptococcal antigen directly from patient throat swab specimens, or confirmation of presumptive Group A Streptococcal colonies recovered from culture. The test is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of Group A Streptococcal infection.

The QuickVue Dipstick Strep A test is a lateral flow immunoassay utilizing Quidel's patented antibody-labeled particles (within 5 minutes). The test detects either viable or nonviable organisms directly from throat swabs or culture colonies.

To perform the test, a throat swab specimen is collected. Antigen is extracted from the swab specimen with Reagents A and B. The Dipstick is then added to the extracted sample.
