Meeting Laboratories' Needs with First Line Biology™ rapid tests
Laboratories require improved traceability, sample preparation, quality control, and results that are easier to read when using rapid tests. First Line Biology answers these needs: it is a complete solution for the first diagnostic answer, essential for laboratories who are increasingly concerned with being able to respond quickly and reliably to patients' and clinicians' demands. First Line Biology growing product ranges bioNexia® and VIKIA® are a logical extension to bioMérieux's diagnostic offer for laboratories, and reflect our know-how in good practices and workflow.
Our bioNexia Legionella test detects the presence of Legionella pneumophila and its serogroup 1, the most commonly identified pathogens in Legionnaires’ disease, directly from urine samples. It is ideal as a first-line test to enable early initiation of targeted therapy for improved patient outcomes.
bioNexia® Rota Adeno
bioNexia® Rota-Adeno is a qualitative immunochromatographic test that allows simultaneous detection and differentiation of Rotavirus and Adenovirus in a single stool extract.
bioNexia® H. pylori Ag
Cost-effective and non-invasive detection of H. pylori antigen in stool samples. bioNexia H. pylori Ag provides a quick first-line answer for optimal patient management. Optional patient set available for easier stool collection: bioNexia H. pylori Ag PS.
bioNexia® Influenza A+B
Influenza is a highly contagious, acute infection of the respiratory tract, for which the influenza viruses A and B are the most common causes. The First Line Biology bioNexia Influenza A+B rapid test detects and differentiates between the two viruses using a nasopharyngeal specimen, and provides results at 10 minutes.
bioNexia® Strep A plus and Strep A dipstick
An acute sore throat may be the result of bacterial pathogens that require antibiotic treatment. Group A Streptococcus are responsible for most cases of Streptococcal diseases. First Line Biology bioNexia Strep A Plus and Strep A Dipstick determine the presence or absence of Group A Streptococcus using human throat swabs, with results provided at 5 minutes.
Rapid 3-in-1 detection of main gastroenteritis viruses
bioNexia® Noro/Rota-Adeno is a rapid test able to detect specific antigens in human stool. It is an accurate first-line answer to help contain outbreaks, avoid inappropriate antibiotic therapy, and reduce children mortality in low-income countries.
The bioNexia FOBplus First Line Biology rapid test detects human haemoglobin in stools, which could potentially be linked to adenomatous polyps and colorectal cancer.
bioNexia FOBplus is easy to use and reliable, providing advantages for both patients and lab professionals, including 'no mess' sample collection, results available at five minutes, and a migration control.
bioNexia® hCG Urine and hCG Combo
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is present in urine and human serum soon after conception, and rises rapidly during early gestational growth. The First Line Biology bioNexia hCG Urine and hCG Combo tests are >99% sensitive and provide results in three to five minutes depending on the test and the sample type.
