The illumigene Group A Streptococcus (Group A Strep) assay, performed on the illumipro-10, is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the detection of Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus) in throat swab specimens. The illumigene Group A Strep assay utilizes loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) technology to detect Streptococcus pyogenes by targeting a segment of the Streptococcus pyogenes genome. Results from the illumigene Group A Strep assay can be used as an aid in the diagnosis of Group A Streptococcal pharyngitis. The assay is not intended to monitor treatment for Group A Streptococcus infections.

    Device Class: 2

    Physical State: Should not include microarray or electrophoresis detection methods or instruments.

    Definition: The system is a clinical multiplex instrument intended to measure and sort multiple signals generated my multiple probes, intercalating dyes, or other ligands in an assay from a clinical sample. Signals may be generated by fluorescence or other phenomena and may be measured using filters on a photodiode or other detector. It may integrate sample and/or reagent handling, amplification, dedicated instrument control, data acquisition software, raw data storage mechanisms and other essential hardware components along with the signal reader unit. The system is used with specific assays to comprise an assay test system.

    Gmp Exempt Flag: A real-time thermocycler is intended to identify and/or quantify the presence of specific sequences of double stranded DNA, amplified from a biological source and labeled with fluorescently labeled probes or through the use of intercalating dyes and detect using a high-power light-emitting diode (LED). Fluorescence emission is detected through the use of filters on a photodiode. The emission filters are optimized for use with specific fluorescent dyes.
