Amplidiag® CarbaR+MCR

CE-IVD pending.


Amplidiag® CarbaR+MCR identifies clinically most relevant carbapenemase groups as well as colistin resistance markers in one single test.


This molecular diagnostic test has been designed to be a cost-effective solution for high-volume screening directly from stool, rectal swabs and pure culture samples for the diagnosis of carbapenemase-producing organisms (CPO) and colistin-resistant Enterococci (CRE).


This qualitative multiplex real-time PCR test gives results within a few hours, as opposed to days with culture-based screening methods. By allowing rapid and reliable detection of antibiotic resistances, Amplidiag CarbaR+MCR supports decisions to manage efficiently epidemiological and infection control measures and improve patient care.
