Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
BD GeneOhm VanR Assay , Catalog # 441250, 5 box tests labeled in part***GeneOhm Sciences Canada, Inc., 2555 boul, du Parc-Technologique, Quebec, QC, Canada G1P 4S5***. The BD GeneOhm VanR Assay is a qualitative in vitro test for the rapid detection of vancomycin-resistance (vanA and vanB) genes directly from perianal or rectal swabs. The BD GeneOhm VanR Assay detects the presence of the vanA and vanB genes that can be associated with vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). The assay is performed on an automated real-time PCR instrument with perianal or rectal swabs from individuals at risk for VRE colonization. The BD GeneOhm VanR Assay can be used as an aid to identify, prevent and control vancomycin-resistant colonization in healthcare settings. The BD GeneOhm VanR Assay is not intended to diagnose VRE infections nor to guide or monitor treatment for VRE infections. Concomitant cultures are necessary to recover organisms for epidemiological typing, susceptibility testing and for further confirmatory identification. Lot/ Exp. 05T11042 2012-04-30 (ONLY SOLD IN EUROPE) Class II Leakage in Cepheid SmartCycler reaction tubes. 5 kits Z-2320-2012
BD GeneOhm Cdiff Assay , Catalog # 441401, 200 box tests 2-3 labeled in part***GeneOhm Sciences Canada, Inc., 2555 boul, du Parc-Technologique, Quebec, QC, Canada G1P 4S5*** BD GeneOhm Cdiff Assay is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection of C. difficile toxin gene (tcdB) in human liquid or soft stool specimens from patients suspected of having Clostridium difficile-associated disease (CDAD). The test, based on real-time PCR, is intended for use as an aid in diagnosis of CDAD. The test is performed directly on the specimen, utilizing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the amplification of specific targets and fluorogenic target-specific hybridization probes for the detection of the amplified DNA.
