Serotype diagnostic of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans for personalised treatment of patients
With iai PadoTest Plus, you can now identify the serotypes of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (including the highly virulent JP2 clone) and avoid over-treatment with antibiotics related to this bacterium. Serotypes are variants within a species that are associated with different degrees of virulence. Our test allows the distinction between serotypes a, b, c, d, e and f, whereby serotype a with a high prevalence has the lowest virulence and no antibiotic administration is indicated.
Further information on iai PadoTest Plus can be found in our technical information.
Diagnostic of Aa serotypes using iai PadoTest Plus is available as an optional supplement to the regular iai PadoTest and consitutes a useful decision-making tool for personalised treatment.
The option for iai PadoTest Plus can be selected when making each order but will be only activated and billed in case of detection of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans.
