Partnering with microbiologists to diagnose and prevent diseaseTM

Antimicrobial Stewardship

The only rapid, multiplex, phenotypic test capable of detecting KPC, OXA-48-like, VIM, IMP, and NDM carbapenemases produced by Enterobacterales and P. aeruginosa.

Cost effective

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.

Cat. no. CARBA5

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!

NG-Test MCR-1

Rapid test for the detection of Colistin resistance via expression of mcr-1 gene on bacterial colony from culture. For research use only.

Performance Characteristics

Detection limit
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.

Sensitivity: 100%
Confidence interval 95% : 96.3% to 100%
Specificity: 98.3%
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.

Performance Characteristics

Detection limit
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 2: CTX-M-2
Group 8: CTX-M-8
Group 9: CTX-M-9, -13, -14, -17, -18, -19, -24, -27, -65, -93
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.

Cat. no. G323
Cat. no. G323

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

ESBL Blue
Cat. no. G321
MRSA

This new chromogenic medium simplifies the identification of MRSA infections. MRSA strains grown in the presence of chromogenic substrates produce deep pink to magenta colonies. Color development is bright, distinct and easy to read.

• Distinct color change read-out
• Bright color development
• Compatible with automation
• Read-out at 24 hours
