Modern diagnostic kits and equipment for species determination and testing of antibiotic resistance of many bacteria have been developed by the medical industry in different countries. However, the range of antibacterial drugs used often does not match those certified in EurAsEC and does not take into account the ability of microorganisms to form biofilm. The purpose of this research was to create diagnostic kits for species identification and testing of antibiotic resistance of Streptococcus spp. pathogens with the ability to make a biofilm matrix. The outcome of the study was the development and registration of diagnostic kits AB-STRÂ and ID-STREP, which allow determination of sensitivity to 19 antibacterial drugs most commonly used in medical institutions, and identification 44 types of bacteria in the family Streptococcaceae, as well as the ability of bacteria to form biofilm.
