Latex Agglutination Testing

Detect antigens and antibodies with traditional latex

Find your identification and confirmation solution from one of the largest portfolios of latex agglutination products in the world. With a wide range of organisms and organism types, you can find solutions that test from human and food samples, blood culture, and colonies isolated on plated culture media.

Rapidly detect and identify antigens of organisms, such as Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria spp., from human body fluids, blood cultures or culture media.

Screen for qualitative detection and semi-quantitative assessment of antibodies associated with a wide range of relevant organisms and illnesses including syphilis, Lyme disease, Toxoplasma gondii, rubella, and HSV in serum or plasma.

Rapidly confirm and/or presumptively identify Escherichia coli serogroup O157:H7 and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) serotypes with colonies isolated from plated media.

Rapidly identify and differentiate strains of staphylococci by detecting the clumping factor and/or protein A characteristic of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Use reliable latex testing to identify surface antigens associated with MSSA strains.

Isolate, identify and confirm streptococci with rapid, reliable results. Utilize acid or enzyme extraction for fast, qualitative detection of Lancefield groups A, B, C, D, F and G.

Detect Bacillis cereus or Clostridium perfringens enterotoxins and E. coli verocytotoxin VT1 and VT2 from food or fecal specimens, or detect staphylococcal toxic-shock syndrome toxin (TST) with a complete kit for Reversed Passive Latex Agglutination (RPLA).

Detect, presumptively identify and/or confirm a variety of microbes from culture and serum, including E. coliClostridium difficileStreptococcus pneumoniaeListeria, Cryptococcus and Salmonella.
