Multiplex LFA Strips

To test for multiple biological threats with one Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) strip, Tetracore provide the Multiplex BioThreat Alert® strips. The Multiplex strips are sensitive, accurate and simple to use. Within 20 minutes, the strips can confirm whether specified Bacteria or Toxin threats are present within the sample under analysis.

The Multiplex strips come in packs of 10 strips and are available as the following variants, testing for the listed biological agents:

  • Toxin: Ricin, Abrin, SEB (Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B) and Botulinum Toxin A&B
  • Bacteria: B. anthracis (Anthrax), Y. pestis (Plague), F. tularenis (Tularemia) and Burkholderia (Psuedomallei & mallei)

As with any screening device, all results must be confirmed by a certified laboratory.

C2T Sample Preparation Swab

Tetracore’s C2T Sample Preparation Swab is an all-in-one sampling system which is ideal for use by first responders with the BioThreat Alert® strips.

The simple to use pen-style system houses a removable swab, a buffer solution in an ampoule within the pen and a re-sealable pipette end, allowing the user to easily dispense the liquid sample whilst also being able to dispose of the potentially contaminated sample in a controlled manner.

Once a sample has been prepared with the C2T swab, it is suitable to use simultaneously with the BioThreat Alert® strips and the T-COR 8™ Multiplex assay cartridges.

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) kits

Tetracore also provide ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays) kits to test for a range of biological agents. Suitable for lab-based analysis, the ELISA kits offer an accurate, sensitive and efficient technique for the testing of biological threats in environmental samples.

Tetracore provide the ELISA kits in the Plus/Minus (+/-) format, utilizing a positive row of capture antibody above a negative row of normal, same species antibody. The lower result can be subtracted from the top result to produce an adjusted result. It is the preferred method for complex sample matrices.

Advantages of using ELISA kits:

  • Better sensitivity than BioThreat Alert Strips.
  • ELISA format is friendly to samples from complex matrices: Food, Surface swipes, Unknown powders, Air collected samples, Air filters.
  • Optional 'Positive/Negative' capture format reduces matrix effects.
  • Kits are available either pre-coated with capture antibody or non-coated to allow for user flexibility.

 ELISA kits for the following biothreats are available:

  • Abrin
  • B. anthracis (Anthrax)
  • B. globigii
  • Botulinum Toxin A, A&B, B, C, E and F
  • Brucella
  • Burkholderia
  • F. Tularensis (Tularemia)
  • MS2 Bacteriophage
  • Ricin
  • Staphylococcal Enterotoxin A, B and C (SEA, SEB and SEC)
  • Vibrio cholerae 01, Vibrio cholerae 0139
  • Y. pestis (Plague)

Not for diagnostic use of clinical samples.
