Just in time for cold and flu season. (Product watch).

The new antideoxyribonuclease B (Dnase B) test is a fully automated immunoassay which runs on Beckman Coulter's IMMAGE immunochemistry system and aids the diagnosis and management of streptococcal-based infections. The assay is intended for the quantative determination of human antibodies to DnaseB in serum samples. A reliable test for both skin and throat infections, the assay expands the streptococcal test panel on the IMMAGE system. The assay also helps diagnostic labs increase testing sensitivity to streptococcal-based infections, including patients with acute rheumatic fever, acute glomerulonephritis, Sydenham's chorea, scarlet fever, pharyngitis, and other group A illnesses.
