rapidSTRIPE Rickettsia Assay
Test system for fast, uncomplicated detection of Rickettsia in ticks
- Final detection performed on a stable Lateral Flow Strip (LFS) suitable for archiving
- Kit contains all consumables and solutions needed, including the positive control
- Kit has been optimized for rapid and PCR thermal cyclers
The rapidSTRIPE Rickettsia Assay can be used as a fast, simple, highly sensitive tool for testing ticks for the presence of Rickettsia. The system is based on RAH technology, which uses a sequencespecific probe to link PCR amplification with hybridization. Both reactions proceed in the same reaction vessel. The RAH product is applied to a Lateral Flow Strip in the final step; the appearance of a visible test line confirms the presence of Rickettsia. The ready-touse kit contains all of the necessary reagents and plastic materials.
