For use in qualitative procedures for the presumptive identification of Candida albicans by the rapid detection of L-Proline aminopeptidase and Β-galactosaminidase
Test results in 30 seconds
4-Methylumbelliferyl-N-acetyl-Β-D-galactosaminide in the presence of the enzyme Β-galactosaminidase releases 4-methylumbelliferone, which is a highly fluorescent compound detectable by ultraviolet light
L-Proline aminopeptidase hydrolyzes L-Proline-Β-napthylamide and reacts with the color developer to form a red color If PRO and MUGAL are both positive, then C. albicans is present Product is ready for use and no further preparation is necessary
Test cards, rehydrating fluid, color developer, MUGAL reagent and applicator sticks.
