ASM/Microbe 2016: ARUP presents a pivotal poster on assays for Molecular testing of gastrointestinal (GI) pathogens causing acute diarrhea using of BioGX’s Sample Ready technology.
ARUP presented data on 3 highly multiplex enteric panels that were produced under contract manufacturing services by BioGX. The multiplex panels included targets for Bacterial, Parasitic and Viral pathogens. The conclusion was “The use of molecular methods for stool samples from suspected GI infections has increased analytical sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional stool culture and antigen testing methods, and reveals significant deficiencies with the performance of conventional methods used in routine ordering practices”. The list of targets and results are available on ARUP’s poster.
