Why Revogene® Strep A?

The Revogene Strep A assay is for the direct detection of Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A β-hemolytic Streptococcus; GAS) from throat swab specimens obtained from patients with signs and symptoms of pharyngitis. The signs and symptoms of GAS pharyngitis overlap extensively with other infectious causes, making it difficult to diagnose based solely on clinical findings. However, an accurate diagnosis is necessary to promptly and adequately treat the disease with antibiotics and avoid possible serious complications such as rheumatic fever. This test can provide final results in as early as 42 minutes for positive specimens.*

*E-PRO: Early Positive Result Outcome. Positive results in ~42 minutes for highly positive specimens and negative results in ~70 minutes.)

Revogene Strep A demonstrated good performance during our evaluation and is a promising alternative to replace throat culture and RADT for Streptococcal pathogens detection in a patient presenting with pharyngitis symptoms.

Improved detection and rapid results have the potential to improve antibiotic utilization in the emergency department.
