Candida auris PCR

Real-time PCR for Candida auris

  • CDC considers C. auris a serious health threat for three main reasons: C. auris is difficult to identify with standard laboratory methods, is often multi-drug resistant, and causes outbreaks in healthcare settings.*
  • C. auris infections nearly doubled between 2019 and 2021, growing from 756 to 1,471 in two years. C. auris has now been found in more than half of U.S. states.**
  • Detect and identify C. auris properly with our lab test reagents.

HT real-time PCR for High Throughput

Candida auris PCR for fungal detection and identification

Our Candida auris real-time PCR reagents are designed to provide accurate detection of this emerging fungus. The EGMDx research and development team designed our ASR§ and RUO reagents to meet the needs of CLIA high-complexity clinical labs and reference laboratories, allowing your own lab’s design creativity in developing an LDT (laboratory developed test) or in C. auris research.

INFECTIOUS DISEASE TEST PORTFOLIO

Real-Time PCR testing for laboratories

ELITechGroup MDx set an industry standard in real-time PCR with the introduction of minor groove binder (MGB) probe technology, featured in our MGB Alert® products. MGB probe technology has long been the gold standard for hybridization probes that allow for melt curve analysis. Adding to our legacy of innovation, we now offer DSQ Alert probe technology, an evolution in MGB probe chemistry. Our DSQ Alert reagents feature our newest proprietary duplex stabilizing quencher chemistry in hydrolysis probes, offering enhanced signal-to-noise fluorescence and DNA duplex stability. All test reagents may be used on ELITechGroup MDx proprietary instrument systems and on most open channel platforms.
