According to WHO, respiratory tract infections are one of the main causes of sickness rate and mortality both at infancy and at older ages. About 70 % of these infections affect the upper respiratory tract and middle ear region.

Diagnosis and treatment of respiratory infections remain the focus of attention among both therapists and pediatricians since these infections account for over 90 % of all outpatients’ complaints, especially during autumn and winter seasons.

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a natural inhabitant of a human upper respiratory tract. Streptococci are Grampositive facultative anaerobic microorganisms.

Bacterial inoculation is recognized as the golden standard for detecting the microorganism. PCR is used to confirm diagnosis and detect the microorganism against the background of commenced antibiotic therapy.

The Streptococcus pneumoniae Real-Time PCR Detection Kit is in vitro DNA test, which is intended for the specific identification of Streptococcus pneumoniae in human biological samples.
