Rapid Screen Group B Streptococci
Description

For the Rapid Screening of Group B Streptococci


StrepB Carrot Broth™ is a unique modification of Granada Medium consisting of a one-step method for screening pregnant women for the presence of Group B Streptococcus. This screening test is an improvement over conventional methods, by increasing sensitivity, decreasing turnaround time, while lowering labour and material cost. 

Advantages of StrepB Carrot Broth™

  • Easy read-out. If an orange to red colour develops, Strep B is present.
  • Positive results can be reported as early as 6 hours after inoculation.
  • For positives, there is no need for further subculturing or testing.
  • Lower cost when compared to the LIM Broth method
  • Carrot Broth™ was found to be more sensitive than the LIM Broth and Granada Agar Plate methods, and even PCR!
  • Negative cultures from StrepB Carrot Broth™ canbe subbed to a GBS Detect Plate to easily find non-hemolytic strains of GBS.
