BAX® System Real-Time PCR Assay for Staphylococcus aureus

Staph aureus is a common cause of skin infections, and is known to cause foodborne illness and methycillin-resistant Staph aureus is a significant problem in clinical settings. The BAX System Real-Time PCR assay for Staph aureus harnesses the power of the polymerase chain reaction to detect Staph aureus in food and environmental samples. The BAX system provides everything necessary for PCR--polymerase, nucleotides and target-specific primers. The system minimizes operator handling and is easy to use. It can be used for presence/absence or threshold testing.
