Knowing that bacterial meningitis is usually severe and life threatening, and if not diagnosed promptly, the person who gets infected could die after one day, we provide a fast check for bacterial meningitis. By polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and “Flow-through” hybridization, we can genotype the most common bacterial pathogens within 3 hours with high specificity and sensitivity.
The bacterial infection occurs most often in children, teens, and young adults. Also at risk are older adults and people who have long-term health problems, such as a weakened immune system.
The severity of illness and the treatment for meningitis differ depending on the cause. Thus, it is important to know the specific cause of meningitis.
The GenoFlow Bacterial Meningitis Array Test Kit is designed to detect 12 common bacterial pathogens in one go for the purpose of screening meningitis caused by various types of bacteria.
