BTNX’S Rapid Response® Strep A test is a qualitative lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of group A streptococcus, or group A strep, carbohydrate antigen in a throat swab for professional in-vitro diagnostic.

Toronto, Canada – BTNX Inc. has launched a Rapid Response® advanced FDA cleared & CLIA waived in-vitro diagnostic group A streptococcus, or strep A, test, which is a qualitative lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of strep A carbohydrate antigen in a throat swab.

Strep A is a bacterium that is commonly found in the throat and on the skin. Strep A bacteria might cause no symptoms of disease, but they can also cause infections that range from mild to life-threatening.

Strep A bacteria are spread by direct person-to-person contact. The bacteria are carried in discharges from nose or throat of an infected person and in infected wounds or sores on the skin. The bacteria are usually spread when infected secretions come in the contact with the mouth, nose, or eyes of an uninfected person.

Strep A bacteria usually causes relatively mild illnesses, such as streptococcal sore throat (strep throat) and streptococcal skin infections (impetigo). It can also cause more serious illnesses such as scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, postpartum fever, wound infections, and pneumonia.

Occasionally, a deadly type of strep A bacteria can invade the blood, muscle and fat tissue, or lungs and cause a serious and often life- threatening type infections.
