Group A Streptococcus
Group A Streptococcus is a bacterium that can cause a wide range of infections. People may also carry group A streptococci (GAS) in the throat or on the skin and have no symptoms of illness. Most GAS infections are relatively mild illnesses such as “strep throat,” or impetigo (a skin infection). However, these bacteria can also cause severe and even life-threatening diseases.
AvantGen has developed rabbit monoclonal diagnostic antibodies that recognizes all Strep A strains with high affinity tested to date (ATCC:10782, 11434 12344, 12386, 14289 and 49399; CDC: 410, 482, 496, 633, 634, 635, 721, 754, and 799) and do not recognize Strep B, C, F or G. These antibodies are therefore suitable for diagnostic kit development. These antibodies have been shown to outperform rabbit polyclonal antibodies in the similar assays.
