68954-7Streptococcus pyogenes rRNA [Presence] in Throat by ProbeActive

Term Description

This test is for rapid identification (within 1 hour of sample preparation) of Streptococcus pyogenes from throat swabs for diagnosis of Group A Streptococcal pharyngitis. Identification is based on a DNA probe assay which uses nucleic acid hybridization for the qualitative detection of specific ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequences that are unique to Streptococcus pyogenes. This test eliminates the time and difficulty of cultures and can be used as a back-up for POC streptococcal antigen tests. Negative results do not rule out the possibility of an infection since low levels of Group A Streptococcus may not be detected.

Part Description

LP15188-3   Streptococcus pyogenes
Streptococcus pyogenes, also known as Group A Streptococcus (GAS), is a species of gram-positive, coccoid, beta-hemolytic bacteria. It is responsible for a wide variety of both invasive and non-invasive diseases including scarlet fever, pharyngitis, impetigo, cellulitis, necrotizing fasciitis and toxic shock syndrome, as well as the sequelae of rheumatic fever and acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. Invasive GAS infections can be associated with very high mortality rates. [PMID:26866208] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
