Strep B Rapid Test

Group B Streptococci (GBS) or Streptococcus agalactiae are among the most
frequent causes of life-threatening infections in neonates.

Between 5% and 30% of all pregnant women are colonized with GBS.Several recent studies have shown that the
intrapartum treatment of GBS-colonized women significantly reduces the incidence of GBS-caused sepsis.

The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine examination for Group B streptococcus between the 35th and the
37th week of pregnancy. A CDC study has shown that routine examinations is 50% more effective than the use of antibiotics for pregnant women with clinical risk factors.
