ImmulexTM Pneumococcus kits
Pneumococci are enclosed within a capsule consisting of repeated units of polysaccharides. The composition of the polysaccharides defines the serotype.
The polyclonal pool, type and factor antisera are purified and coupled to blue latex particles. All the products are absorbed free of cross-reactions.
Each kit is supplied in a box with ready-to-use latex reagents, sufficient for approx. 75 tests.
Many years of experience producing Pneumococcus antisera
All absorbed free of cross-reactions

How to use
The latex products are used for serotyping based on agglutination. Equal quantities of latex reagent and bacterial culture are mixed on a white card, which is tipped back and forth. The reaction must be read within 5-10 seconds.
ImmuLex™ Pneumotest Kit
The kit consists of the latex reagents pools A-I and P-Q. By testing all 14 pools and using the chessboard system described, it is possible to identify the 23 vaccine serotypes to type/group level. Traditional or latex-coupled factor antisera can then be used for full serotyping.

Antibodies can be frozen, but the process of freezing and thawing is damaging for the antibodies, and the titer will drop (even though not dramatically) due to decomposition.
We have not made further studies on this, and cannot guarantee the stability of the sera, but we have experienced that mostly the titer stays at the same level if a serum is only frozen and thawn once.
Yes, it is possible, if you place an order in advance with the expected total volume for the period. In return we guarantee to keep the reserved lot for you.
Please send an inquiry. We might have it. Depending on the needed volume, we might be able to develop the requested product. It can be anything from a new pool composition to a new serum.
