Elevate GI Diagnostic Accuracy with Specialized Testing Panels

Deciphering the Complexity of GI Infection Diagnosis

Diagnosing Gastrointestinal (GI) infections presents a multifaceted challenge for healthcare providers. Symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain are common to a variety of GI disorders, complicating the task of identifying the specific causative agent. The wide range of potential pathogens—including bacteria, viruses, and parasites—adds to the diagnostic complexity. Chronic and recurrent GI infections demand accurate pathogen identification for effective management and long-term patient care.


Studies show that there are over 200 MM episodes of infectious gastroenteritis in the U.S. every year. The spectrum of pathogens that can cause GI infections – bacteria, parasites, and viruses – requires an assortment of classical detection methods (culture, antigen EIA, stool parasite microscopy) in order to target and identify the causative agent.
