ARM-D® Kit, β-Lactamase

The Streck ARM-D Kit, β-Lactamase is a multiplex real-time PCR kit for the rapid detection of β-lactam antibiotic resistance genes in Gram-negative bacteria. This comprehensive kit allows you to detect over 450 allelic variants in 9 clinically relevant carbapenemases, extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and plasmid-mediated ampC gene families, KPC, NDM, OXA-48, IMP, VIM, DHA, CMY-2, CTX-M-14 and CTX-M-15.

The ARM-D Kit, β-Lactamase is part of a family of comprehensive, multiplex real-time PCR kits that detect over 1,000 antimicrobial resistance (AMR) gene variants from 26 different gene target families. Streck ARM-D Kits provide a rapid detection strategy for monitoring β-lactam antibiotic resistance. With these kits, your lab can improve surveillance, aid antibiotic stewardship programs and support infection control programs…
