S pneumoniae and L pneumophila

ImmuView® S. pneumoniae and L. pneumophila Urinary Antigen Test is a combined rapid lateral flow test for qualitative detection of S. pneumoniae and L. pneumophila serogroup 1 in human urine samples. The test is effective in presumptive diagnosis of Legionella infection (Legionnaires’ Disease) caused by L. pneumophila serogroup 1 or pneumococcal pneumonia caused by S. pneumoniae in conjunction with culture and other methods. Correct and early treatment is vital for the prognosis of both diseases and therefore rapid methods to confirm both diseases in the initial phase are very important in order to initiate the proper antibiotic treatment as soon as possible.
