OPERON is glad to announce that the poster “Utility of a Reverse-Hybridization Strip assay for Streptococcus pneumoniae serotyping” will be presented, in cooperation with Hospital de Donosti, during The 12th European Meeting on the Molecular Biology of the Pneumococcus (EuroPneumo 2015), will be held from 7th July to 10th July 2015 in Oxford, United Kingdom.
The main objective was to validate one of our Molecular technologies (hybridization on strip) for the serotyping of Streptococcus pneumoniae.
The prototype (serotypes included in the PCV13) was validated against 94 reference isolates of pneumococcal serotypes showing 100% specificity.
A concordance of 100% with the Quellung reaction was also demostrated with 66 proviously serotyped clinical isolates.
