The ARIES® GBS Assay is a rapid method for the detection of Streptococcus agalactiae, also known as Group B Streptococcus, from LIM broth enriched specimens using a sample to answer platform

With the ARIES® GBS Assay:


  • Integrated sample processing control ensures the assay run is successful from extraction through amplification.
  • Internal barcode scanning matches samples to cassettes, enabling Position Independent Results no matter where each cassette is placed.
  • Reduced data input errors with electronic ordering through bidirectional LIS connectivity.
  • Reduced turnaround time with simultaneous STAT and batch testing on a single ARIES® System.



The operator prepares the sample, adds it to the cassette, puts the cassette in the magazine, loads the magazine into the ARIES® System, and the run will start automatically.
