FungiXpert Lateral Flow Assays for rapid qualitative or quantitative results
FungiXpert Lateral Flow Assays
FungiXpert is a range of fungal diagnostics manufactured by Genobio, a subsidiary of the Era Biology Group.
Established in 1997 Era Biology is now a global leader and pioneer of invasive fungal disease diagnostics with a wide range of product formats.
Rapid assays to detect the most common fungal pathogens (Aspergillus, Candida, and Cryptococcus) either qualitatively or quantitatively are now available.
The quantitative results are achieved without serial dilutions.
The cassette format is simple to use and each product is coded to ensure the reader applies the appropriate standard curve for interpretation.
Aspergillus Galactomanna Performance
Evaluation of 981 samples (341 positive 640 negative) at 3 hospitals produced these performance results:
The sensitivity and specificity for the FungiXpert LFA is 90.6-96.8% and 95-96.4%
Add 70 ul BAL fluid to cassette, read after 10 minutes.
Serum samples require heat treatment of 100C for 3 minutes and cetrifugation before adding 50uL to cartridge. Read after 10 minutes.
FungiXpert Lateral Flow Reader
A pre-programmed instrument for quantitatively reading lateral flow assays for fungal biomarkers.
Quantitative Lateral flow assays open the door to the benefits of combination testing in diagnosing fungal infections.
The quantitative results will now be displayed as determined by the barcode detected standard curve
