RevoDx Streptococcus Pneumoniae qPCR Kit

Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) is a Gram-positive bacterium that is responsible for the majority of community-acquired pneumonia. It is a commensal organism in the human respiratory tract, meaning that it benefits from the human body. Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common cause of middle ear infections, sepsis (blood infection) in children and pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals and the elderly. It can also cause meningitis (inflammation of the coverings of the brain and spinal cord) or sinus infections.

The main way people spread Streptococcus pneumoniae to others is through direct contact with respiratory droplets. The bacteria often spread within households and in crowded conditions. Pneumococcal infections are more common during the winter and early spring.
