New on the block: Our Comprehensive Gastro Intestinal Infections (qPCR assay ) in our MDx Panel

Gastrointestinal diseases, especially threatening to young children and immunocompromised individuals, are a significant global health concern. According to WHO, nearly 1.7 billion cases of childhood diarrhoeal disease occur annually, leading to about 525,000 deaths in children under five years old. Gastroenteritis, an inflammatory condition impacting the gut, affects both the stomach and intestines.

Traditional diagnostic tests for gastrointestinal pathogens can be time-consuming, taking anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 days to generate results. However, Multiplex Real-time PCR (Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel) provides a more efficient alternative, capable of testing multiple pathogens and virulence genes in under 5 hours. Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) enable syndromic testing of stool for various pathogens simultaneously, delivering rapid and accurate results.

At our Carolina Diagnostic Labs based efficient testing methods like Multiplex Real-time q-PCR and NAATs are pivotal in the early detection and management of gastrointestinal diseases, leading to improved patient outcomes and a reduction in the spread of infections.
