Quick Overview

Phadebact® Pneumococcus Test is a co-agglutination test containing Pneumococcal Reagent and Pneumococcal Control. The Pneumococcal Reagent is composed of specific antipneumococcal antibodies, raised in rabbits and coupled to the protein A of non-viable staphylococci (3, 4). The Pneumococcal Control is composed of gammaglobulin from non-immunized rabbits, coupled to the staphylococci. When a sample containing pneumococci is mixed with the Pneumococcal Reagent, specifi c antigens on the cell surface bind to the corresponding specifi c antibodies. In this way, a co-agglutination lattice is formed, which is visible to the naked eye.
