Streck and Creighton University are partnering to present molecular findings at American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Microbe 2016 at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Dr. Nancy Hanson, Professor and Director of the Center for Research, Anti-Infectives and Biotechnology, Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Creighton University, Omaha, NE, will speak on Friday, June 17, at 1:45 p.m. at the Industry & Science Showcase Theater. Her presentation describes real-time multiplex PCR assays that detect important ?-lactamase gene families. The Streck ARM-D® Kits, ?-Lactamase, ampC and OXA are compatible with and have been evaluated using fast PCR protocols in several instruments including a 20-minute assay run with the Streck Zulu RT. The kits are easy to use molecular tools for the detection of multiple ?-lactamase gene families of medical importance. Data presented will demonstrate the high degree of specificity and sensitivity for each assay.
Dr. Maria Torres, Streck molecular R&D scientist, will present a poster on Saturday, June 18, at 12:45 p.m. Her research addresses the detection of ESBLs, MBLs, KPCs, and plasmid-mediated ampC ?-Lactamase genes by multiplex real-time PCR.
