Rapid test for the presumptive identification of Staphylococcus aureus

Overview

The Alere BinaxNOW® Staphylococcus aureus Card is a qualitative, in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the presumptive identification of Staphylococcus aureus. The test is performed directly on blood culture samples positive for Gram-positive cocci in clusters. The Alere BinaxNOW® Staphylococcus aureus Card is not intended to diagnose Staphylococcus aureus nor to guide or monitor treatment for Staphylococcus aureus infections. Subculturing positive blood cultures is necessary to recover organisms for susceptibility testing and/or differentiation of mixed growth.
