Carba 5 for Carbapenemase producing enterbacterales

Introducing NG-Test® CARBA 5:

Rapid detection and differentiation of the five most common carbapenemases produced by Enterobacterales and Pseudomonas aeruginosa resistance mechanisms.

NG-Test® CARBA 5 is a lateral flow assay for quick, clear detection of the “big 5” carbapenemase enzymes produced by Enterobacterales and P. aeruginosa. NG-Test® CARBA 5 is the rapid test you’ve been waiting for:
  • Cost effective – Requires no special equipment. The cost per test versus PCR makes it extremely economical.
  • Easy to implementNG-Test® CARBA 5 naturally fits into your workflows and requires no specialized training, unlike molecular tests.
Patient care is the highest priority when dealing with infection control and resistant bacteria. Every minute spent searching is a minute delaying accurate treatment.
Find what you’re looking for more quickly than ever before.
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.

Evaluation of NG-Test CARBA 5 for Rapid Phenotypic Detection and Differentiation of Five Common
Carbapenemase Families: Results of a Multicenter Clinical Evaluation.

NG-Test® CARBA 5 is the only multiplex phenotypic
test capable of detecting "the Big 5"

KPC, OXA-48-like, VIM, IMP, and NDM carbapenemases.

Faster and more cost-effective than PCR!

PCR can only detect the gene. NG-Test® CARBA 5 provides rapid detection of resistant phenotypes which allows you to fast-track infection control measures with accuracy.

The threat of antimicrobial resistance is real.
