The only rapid, multiplex, phenotypic test capable of detecting KPC, OXA-48-like, VIM, IMP, and NDM carbapenemases produced by Enterobacterales and P. aeruginosa.
The cost per test versus PCR makes it extremely economical.
Easy to implement
NG-Test® CARBA 5 naturally fits into your workflows and requires no specialized training, unlike molecular tests.
With NG-Test® CARBA 5, you don’t need to guess. Simply perform the test from bacterial culture and in 15 minutes you’ll save more than money; you’ll be saving lives.
PCR tests will only detect the gene, but is the gene expressing? That’s what counts. NG-Test® CARBA 5 provides rapid detection of resistant phenotypes which allows you to fast-track infection control measures with accuracy
Patient care is the highest priority when dealing with infection control and resistant bacteria. Every minute spent searching is a minute delaying accurate treatment.
A "LINE" means an ENZYME!
Rapid test for the detection of Colistin resistance via expression of mcr-1 gene on bacterial colony from culture. For research use only.
The detection limit was determined using purified recombinant enzymes MCR detection threshold: 300pg/mL.
Validation on a reference strain bank
NG-Test MCR-1 was evaluated on 44 clinical strains at NCR Kremlin bicêtre-Paris (AMR French Reference Center), 117 clinical strains at ANSES-Lyon (National Health Security Agency) and 123 clinical strains at CNR-Clermont Ferrand. (Reference National Center).
A total of 284 Strains were evaluated.
Confidence interval 95% : 96.3% to 100%
Confidence interval 95% : 95.3% to 99.4%
Considering targeted MCR-1 enzyme, all results were correlated to the genotype of strains determined by PCR analysis.
NG-Test MCR-1 detects some MCR-2 variants.
NG-Test CTX-M MULTI
Rapid test for the detection of CTX-M groups 1, 2, 8, 9, 25 extended-spectrum ß-lactamases in a bacterial colony from culture. For research use only.
The detection limit was determined using purified recombinant enzymes.
Group 1 / CTX-M-15 250 pg/mL
Group 2 / CTX-M-2 600 pg/mL
Group 9 / CTX-M-14 100 pg/mL
Validation on a reference strain bank
NG-Test CTX-M MULTI was evaluated on 165 isolates (PCR characterized ESBL content) at the NRC (AMR French National Reference Centre) of CHU Kremlin Bicêthe Paris-France.
Sensitivity : 100% Specificity : 100%
NG-Test CTM MULTI detects the following variants:
Group 1: CTX-M-1, -3, -10, -15, -32, -37, -55, -57, -71, -82, -101, -182

Group 25:CTX-M-94, -100
HardyCHROM™ CRE is a selective and differential chromogenic agar medium intended for the qualitative and presumptive detection from stool specimens of Escherichia coli that are non-susceptible to carbapenems as pink colonies and KES (Klebsiella aerogenes, Klebsiella oxytoca, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae complex, and Serratia marcescens) that are non-susceptible to carbapenems as blue colonies. HardyCHROM™ CRE is intended as an aid in the detection, identification of colonization and control of these bacteria in a healthcare setting. HardyCHROM™ CRE is not intended to diagnose infection or guide therapy. Results can be interpreted after incubation for 18-24 hours. Subculture to non-selective medium is required for confirming identification, antimicrobial susceptibility testing and epidemiological typing.
HardyCHROM™ ESBL is a selective and differential chromogenic medium which is intended for the qualitative and presumptive detection from stool specimens of:
• Enterobacteriaceae that are potentially non-susceptible to ceftazidime and cefpodoxime.
• Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Klebsiella oxytoca.
• Results in as little as 18 hours
• Easy-to-read color development
• Escherichia coli produce pink colonies
• Proteus mirabilis produce yellow/gold colonies
• Klebsiella pneumoniae produce blue colonies
