Identify staphylococci which possess clumping factor, protein A, and/or surface antigens, including those characteristic of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strains, using the Thermo Scientific™ Staphaurex™ Plus Latex Agglutination Test.
Use this rapid latex agglutination test which utilises yellow latex particles coated with human fibrinogen for the detection of clumping factor, specific IgG for the detection of protein A, and surface antigens characteristic of MRSA and MSSA strains. In the presence of target organisms, the latex particles agglutinate to give a strong and easily visible positive reaction. In the absence of target organisms the particles remain in smooth suspension.
