The three day faecal PCR profile is capable of rapid, specific and sensitive detection of the bacterial and parasitic pathogens most commonly responsible for causing infectious gastroenteritis that may otherwise go undetected by traditional microbiological techniques. This unique panel looks at the DNA presence of three different collection samples using PCR detection techniques.
When diagnosing infectious gastroenteritis, conventional diagnostic methods such as faecal microscopy, culture, and sensitivities (and even biochemical tests and ELISA) can be laborious, expensive and insensitive. Additionally, although infection with multiple pathogens is common, existing diagnostic methods are typically ordered and performed for individual pathogens, such that these individual assays may routinely miss the diversity of infecting organisms.
