LIAISON® C. difficile GDH
Automated CLIA assay for the detection of Clostridium Difficile GDH antigen, glutamate dehydrogenase, in human feces.
LIAISON® C. difficile Toxin A/B
Automated CLIA assay for the qualitative determination of Clostridium Difficile toxins A and B in human feces.
An effective solution for
rapid identification of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) by C. difficile
C. difficile is a bacterium that can cause nosocomial intestinal infections with symptoms of varying severity. C. difficile infections are more frequent in immunocompromised and debilitated subjects, and are especially due to prolonged antibiotic therapies.
This bacterium can be found in normal colonic flora of 2-5% of healthy adults and up to 70% of neonates. Approximately 20-40% of patients hospitalized for more than 2 days become colonized with C. difficile.
ACG Clinical Guidelines (USA) define a 2 step algorithm for diagnosing CD, as also recommended by ESCMID Clinical Guidelines (EU).
The Diasorin LIAISON® C. difficile Diagnostic Solution has a CLIA test for each step:
1st step: the detection of GDH as a screening method.
2nd step: the detection of toxins as a confirmatory method.
How it works
The LIAISON® C. difficile Diagnostic Solution offers one solution with the same CLIA technology for the determination of C. difficile infections using the same stool sample.
Easy handling of stool sample
Simplicity of the process
The use of LIAISON® Quantitative Stool Extraction Device reduces the preparation steps of the extracted stool samples and allows the operator to easily handle the stool, thus saving time.
One solution with the same CLIA technology
This panel offers one solution with the same CLIA technology for the determination of C. Difficile infections using the same stool sample.
