Gastro pathogene

Comprehensive test results with the Vivalytic Rota-, Norovirus, C. diff test*

Gastrointestinal diseases (gastroenteritis) are inflammations of the stomach and the small and large intestines. The majority of gastrointestinal diseases are caused by infectious agents, mostly viruses such as norovirus or rotavirus, but bacterial pathogens such as Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile) also play an important role.

The bacterial pathogen C. difficile causes about 15-20% of antibiotic-associated diarrheal diseases. (1) The clinical spectrum of C. difficile infection (CDI) ranges from mild diarrhea to severe, life-threatening pseudomembranous colitis. (2)

Noroviruses cause the majority of all gastrointestinal infections. They are highly contagious and therefore pose a serious problem for healthcare facilities with debilitated patients, e.g. nursing homes. (3)

Rotaviruses are the most common cause of severe diarrhea in infants and young children worldwide. During infection, many children need medical help due to high fluid loss. In addition to children, older people (60+) are also a risk group. (4)

PCR-based diagnostics that are as fast, simple and close to the patient as possible can help to make testing uncomplicated and to process the sensitive samples quickly and without a long transport route. The Vivalytic Rota-, Norovirus, C. diff test* distinguishes between the pathogens C. difficile, norovirus and rotavirus and delivers fast and precise results.

Pathogens detectable with Vivalytic Rota-, Norovirus, C. diff*

  • Clostridioides difficile genes (tcdA/tcdB)
