Nanoparticles are applied for enrichment of target cells from complex matrix and thereby improve the efficiency of detection techniques. In an earlier study from our group the efficacy of a glycine coated magnetic nanoparticle to entrap standard strains of mastitis causing bacteria from milk samples and used it to identify the sensitivity of antibiotics for clinical application (Viswanathan et al., 2014). We have determined the efficacy of the particle in trapping the clinical isolates and also the sensitivity of PCR in detecting the multitude of pathogens and some of their resistance genes in a single tube assay. The nanoparticle not only enabled sensitive detection, but also enabled identification of drug resistant bacterial strains like Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
The Tuberculosis (TB) Antibody Rapid Detection kit is a qualitative, single use and two-step immuno chromatographic screening test for the detection of antibodies to Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in serum, whole blood and plasma from wild animals. It is intended to be used as a preliminary screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with tuberculosis in wild animals. Any reactive specimen with the Tuberculosis Antibody Detection Test must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s).Download Wild TB Alert Kit Brochure
