For in vitro diagnostic use. RIDA®GENE Bacterial Stool Panel is a multiplex real-time PCR for the direct, qualitative detection and differentiation of humanpathogenic Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp. and Yersinia enterocolitica in human stool samples. RIDA®GENE Bacterial Stool Panel multiplex real-time PCR is intended for use as an aid in diagnosis of gastrointestinal infections caused by bacteria.
Diarrheal disease is a major health care problem and causes about 2 billion cases worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks diarrheal disease as 2nd most common cause of child deaths among children under 5 years globally, particularly in developing countries. About 1.9 million children younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea each year, more than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Common causes of bacterial diarrheal disease are Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp. and Y. enterocolitica. RIDA®GENE Bacterial Stool Panel multiplex real-time PCR is a new and attractive alternative method for testing stool samples and has proven to be highly sensitive and specific for the simultaneous detection of three of the most important diarrhea causing bacteria (Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp. and Y. enterocolitica).
