When compared to molecular and reference culture methods, Carrot Broth™ significantly streamlines the work load and time necessary to accurately identify GBS colonization in pregnant women.
This exclusive, one-step test features greater sensitivity and decreased time to results, which lowers overall costs.
A clear, chromogenic reaction as early as 16 hours after inoculation will tell you everything you need to know. Clinical testing of Carrot Broth One-Step demonstrated a sensitivity of 98.8% and a specificity of 98.2% for the recovery of Group B Streptococcus from patient specimens when compared to LIM Broth. Positive results do not require additional work ups!
