BAX® System Real-Time PCR Assay for Vibrio

Vibrio is a persistent threat to producers (and consumers) of seafood, and is easily spread through coastal waters and brackish aquatic environments. Current culture methods are accurate but can take 3 to 5 days to get results. The BAX System Real-Time PCR Assay for Vibrio harnesses the power of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to get results in 24 hours, so you can detect and differentiate three distinct pathogenic species in one test. And take action when you need to.
