Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another - World Health Organization
EKF's rapid tests for infectious diseases help minimize the use of inappropriate treatment protocols and may help lower the risk of developing a more serious illness.
RELY™ H. pylori Rapid Test helps minimize the use of inappropriate treatment protocols and may help lower the risk of developing a more serious illness.
Rely® H.pylori couples lateral flow technology to serological testing in a convenient two-step point-of-care diagnostic test. It qualitatively detects the presence of the H. pylori bacterium in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens and provides accurate and reliable results within 10 minutes.
Rely® H.pylori does not require any additional equipment, expertise or complicated training and has been CLIA waived when testing whole blood. Procedural and external controls are provided and convenient room temperature storage and extended dating help manage inventory during seasonal shifts in testing. Easy and reliable detection of H.pylori - heliobacter pylori - means reduced patient visits, lowering the cost of clinical follow up and enhancing patient outcomes.
RELY™ Rapid Mono Test results allow for immediate therapy to ease discomfort and shorten patients' wait time, minimize the use of unnecessary antibiotics and help reduce the risk of infecting others.
Rely® Mono Rapid Test provides a simple, fast and cost-effective test for Infectious Mononucleosis - sometimes refered to as Mono or glandular fever. By coupling lateral flow technology to the serological test for Mono, a convenient two-step point-of-care diagnostic test for the virus is now available. It qualitatively detects the presence of Mono in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens. It is both reliable and accurate, provides results within five minutes and has been CLIA waived for use with whole blood.
Early detection of Infectious Mononucleosis helps reduce the risk of infecting others, minimises the use of unnecessary antibiotics and improves patient care.
