Detection Kits, Biological Agent

Definition : Detection kits designed to detect and identify biological agents, such as bacteria and virus pathogens and/or toxins. These kits are based on technologies similar to those of clinical laboratory analyzers (e.g., immunoassays performed using test strips with antibodies to specific agents). Typically, a sample is obtained with a swab and mixed with a buffer and then dropped in the test device that displays the results (either positive or negative) within a few minutes.Test strips for most common biothreats are available, including anthrax, ricin, plague (Yersinia pestis), botulinum toxin, tularemia (Francisella tularensis), and brucella. Biological agent detection kits permit in situ screening for unknown biological agents; however, the results should be verified with further laboratory tests. They are used by healthcare workers, rescuers, firefighters, and military personnel for rapid detection in contaminated or potentially contaminated areas.
