VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile Test

Help patients identify and recover from C. difficile infections more quickly

VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile Test is a rapid, easy-to-use, and cost-effective solution for the identification of toxin-producing C. difficile.

Diagnostic test for the detection of gastrointestinal pathogens - Diasorin

Disease state

According to the CDC, Clostridium difficile is now the most common microbial healthcare associated infection (HAI), with annual healthcare costs exceeding $4.8 billion. Approximately 15,000 deaths are attributable to C. difficile infection each year in the US.

Clostridium difficile infections cause symptoms that range from mild diarrhea to the more severe and potentially fatal pseudomembranous colitis

The value of VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile Test (CDF)

Empower clinicians to rapidly and accurately diagnose C. difficile to ensure appropriate treatment

Proven clinical impact

Rapid identification of C. difficile can help ensure appropriate patient treatment and improve infection control protocols.

Outstanding economic value

Decrease costs by improved infection control measures that reduce the length of stay.

Workflow benefits

The VERIGENE® System provides an easy-to-use C. difficile test that delivers accurate test results in < 2 hours.

How the VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile Test works

VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile is a multiplexed, qualitative test for the rapid detection of toxin A (tcdA), toxin B (tcdB), and tcdC gene sequences of toxigenic C. difficile and for presumptive identification of PCR ribotype 027 strains from unformed (liquid or soft) stool specimens.



Consumables arrive at the laboratory ready to use with no further reagent preparation.


Faster time to results

By simultaneously targeting both the toxin A and toxin B genes and differentiating the 027 strain, VERIGENE® Clostridium difficile Test delivers comprehensive results directly from a stool sample in less than 2 hours.
