Overview of streptococcal infections

Streptococci are a group of bacteria that can cause various infections ranging from mild to life-threatening. There are different types of streptococci, including Group A and Group B, each of which can affect different parts of the body. Common streptococcal infections can lead to strep throat, skin infections and, in more severe cases, rheumatic fever, a condition that can affect the heart, joints, skin and nervous system. These bacteria can be transmitted through direct contact or through the air, making prevention and early detection essential for effective treatment.

The AST Test: General streptococcal infections

The AST test, offered by, focuses on detecting common streptococcal infections. This test is especially important for diagnosing infections caused by Group A Streptococci, which often lead to throat problems and, if left untreated, rheumatic fever. Early diagnosis with the AST test can help determine appropriate treatment, significantly reducing the risk of complications and long-term health problems. It is a simple and reliable way to quickly identify streptococcal infections so that appropriate medical care can be initiated.

The GBS Test for Pregnant Women

The Group B Streptococcus (GBS) test is specially designed for pregnant women. Group B Streptococcus is a bacterium that can be present in the vagina in many pregnant women without causing symptoms. However, during delivery, the bacteria can be transmitted to the baby and cause serious infections in rare cases. The GBS test, performed through a swab of the vagina, is crucial to assess the risk to the newborn. This test ensures that, if necessary, preventive measures can be taken during delivery to protect the baby from infection.

The importance of early detection and treatment

Early detection of streptococcal infections is essential to prevent serious health complications. Both the AST test and the GBS test play an important role in the early identification of these bacteria. Early diagnosis allows health professionals to begin treatment in a timely manner, which is crucial to limit the spread of infection and protect overall health. Especially in pregnant women, detecting GBS can be vital for both mother and child.

Who might consider a streptococcal test?

It is recommended that all pregnant women undergo the GBS test, given the potential risks to the newborn. In addition, individuals with symptoms that may indicate streptococcal infection, such as sore throat, skin rash or other symptoms of bacterial infection, should consider undergoing the AST test. These tests are also valuable for individuals who are in close contact with high-risk groups, such as health care workers, teachers and those working in nursing homes. At, we offer accessible and reliable tests to detect these infections quickly and accurately.
