Solana GAS Assay and Control Set by Quidel

  • Solana GAS Assay is a rapid in vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of Group A #-hemolytic Streptococcus (Streptococcus pyogenes) nucleic acids isolated from throat swab specimens obtained from patients with signs and symptoms of pharyngitis, such as sore throat
  • The Solana GAS Assay, when performed on the Solana instrument, allows for the rapid, accurate detection of Group A Strep without the need for culture confirmation
  • The assay utilizes helicase-dependent amplification (HDA) of the DNase B (sdaB) sequence and fluorescent probe-based detection in the Solana instrument to determine assay results
  • A throat swab sample or an aliquot of liquid transport media is lysed by simple heat treatment, diluted, and added to a Reaction Tube containing the lyophilized HDA reagents including primers specific for the amplification of the DNAase B (sdaB) sequence as well as sequence specific probes
  • Competitive process control (PRC) is included in the Lysis Tube to monitor sample processing, inhibitory substances in clinical samples, reagent failure or instrument failure
  • Qty :48 test ( Assay kit)
  • Kit Size / Case Size : 0.5ml ( Control set)
  • Sample type : Throat swab specimens obtained from patients symptomatic of acute pharyngitis
  • Time to results : Approximately 35 minutes
  • Reagent storage conditions : Lysis, Dilution and Reaction Tubes; 2#C to 8#C
  • Controls storage conditions : 2#C to 8#C
  • Sample preparation storage conditions (cultured enriched broth) : 25#C to 2#C for up to 2 days and then at 2#C to 8#C for up to 6 more days before testing or at #-15#C or #-70#C for up to 34 days before testing
