Diarrhea Pathogen Panel

The Diarrhea Pathogen Panel

An FDA Approved Test for 22 Bacterial, Parasitic and Viral Infections

It is difficult to determine the root cause of diarrhea based on clinical features alone. Integrated multiplex PCR and bead array technology offer a highly sensitive and specific method of gastrointestinal pathogen detection. The test is comprehensive, reliable, fast and can help improve patient health outcome. Our easy-to-read reports, based on the presence or absence of viruses, bacteria, or parasites, allow you to quickly choose the most effective treatments for your patients.
