Overview

Background

Group A Streptococcus is responsible for common infections, such as strep throat, and may cause up to 30% of acute pharyngitis cases in children and up to 20% of cases in adults. Patients may present with symptoms that overlap extensively with other infectious diseases, which makes diagnosis difficult when based solely on clinical observation.1 The benefits of quality molecular testing continue to gain momentum as an alternative to culture and rapid antigen testing as they provide definitive answers without supplemental testing.
