Oxford Biosystems Cadama (OBC) are proud to represent internationally recognised manufacturers of diagnostic kits and reagents for the investigation and diagnosis of infectious diseases in the UK and Ireland
The Focus 3M™ Integrated Cycler is an award winning innovation in real time PCR instrumentation. With the Focus Simplexa™ molecular products this system is designed to provide rapid, reliable, clinically validated real time PCR results for quantitative, qualitative and multi-analyte detection.
The cycler has a small footprint (less than one square foot) and easy to use software and the expanding assay menu includes direct amplification kits requiring no prior sample extraction process.
Real time PCR kits for use on other instruments are also available allowing us to offer customers product packages to suit their individual requirements.
Statens Serum Instituut (SSI) is a public enterprise operating in Copenhagen under the Danish Ministry of Health and Prevention. SSI Diagnostica produces an extensive range of antisera and kits for bacterial typing as well as purified pneumococcal serotype antigens and well classified bacterial strains.
The Pseudomonas IgG CF ELISA kit has been designed to aid in the treatment and monitoring of cystic fibrosis patients by distinguishing chronic from non-chronic Pseudomonas infection.
The Rapid-VIDITEST product range includes rapid (less than 10 minutes) immunochromatographic assays for respiratory and gastrointestinal bacterial pathogens, including C difficile and Legionella.
We also offer the AID BacSpot Colony Counter as a compact, automated solution for the fast and accurate numeration of bacterial colonies on standard agar plates.
In addition to our molecular products we supply a range of CE marked ELISA and IFA kits for the measurement of specific antibodies as an aid to diagnosis of viral infections, and in vaccine response and epidemiological studies.
The Rapid-VIDITEST product range includes rapid (less than 10 minutes) immunochromatographic assays for respiratory and gastrointestinal viral pathogens, including Influenza (A, B, Swine, Avian), RSV and Enterovirus.
ELISA kits are available for measuring the level of specific antibodies to the most common parasites with human pathogenicity. The presence of Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium parvum in faecal samples can be confirmed either by ELISA or by a more rapid immunochromatographic test using patented technology that provides sensitive and specific results within 5 minutes.
A new concentration kit for the effective and clean processing of faecal samples for the microscopic examination for ova/parasites is also available.
The hygiene monitoring tests manufactured by Orion Diagnostica provide laboratories, industry and authorities with an easy to use, on-site means of detecting contamination by micro-organisms or protein residues. This allows simple monitoring of the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection procedures at sites with strict hygiene requirements.
