BOERNE, TX – November 30, 2007 - RELY™ Mono Rapid Test is Stanbio’s CLIA waived* rapid test for the qualitative detection of infectious mononucleosis. Infectious mononucleosis symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, mimic other serious infections that need different and urgent treatment. Quick and reliable detection of mononucleosis means improved patient care. Results in five minutes enable immediate clinical decisions that may ease patient discomfort and shorten patient’s wait time. Early IgM detection of mononucleosis reduces the risk of infecting others while helping to minimize the utilization of unnecessary antibiotics.

Each complete RELY™ Mono Rapid Test kit provides a fast, convenient, sensitive and economical approach to the detection of Infectious Mononucleosis in whole blood, serum or plasma. Available in a 20 test configuration, the RELY™ Mono Rapid Test kit includes individually pouched cassettes, sample buffer, disposable sample droppers, disposable heparinized capillary tubes with dispensing bulb and positive and negative controls. An easy-to-use procedure card is also included.
