- Streptococcus Group A Direct, DNA Probe
- Gen-Probe® Group A Streptococcus Direct Test
Uses nucleic acid hybridization for the qualitative detection of group A streptococcal RNA as an aid in the diagnosis of group A streptococcal pharyngitis from throat swabs
Blood and potentially other chemiluminescent substances may interfere with this test. A negative test does not exclude the possibility that the numbers of group A streptococcal cells may be below the level of detection of the assay. Some strains of Streptococcus equi and rare strains of nonhemolytic streptococci which react with group G antisera may result in a false-positive reaction.
Swab of posterior oropharynx, tonsils, or other inflamed area
One or two swabs
Causes for Rejection
Throat swab that contains visible blood; improper labeling; inappropriate specimen transport device; specimen received after prolonged delay (more than 48 hours); source other than throat
