For in vitro diagnostic use. RIDA®QUICK Campylobacter is an immunochromatographic rapid test for the qualitative detection of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli antigens in human stool samples and cultures.
Next to salmonellosis, campylobacteriosis has become one of the world’s most common food-borne diarrheal diseases in humans. The high incidence of Campylobacter enteritis is facilitated by the widespread, cross-species distribution of the Campylobacter bacterium in wildlife, livestock and domestic animals (birds and mammals).
To successfully culture these sensitive bacteria, the stool samples should be as fresh as possible and should be transported to the laboratory quickly or under refrigerated conditions. This does not apply to modern antigen detection systems such as the RIDA®QUICK Campylobacter rapid test, which permits the specific detection of Campylobacter antigen in stool specimens, even in cases where the bacteria is no longer cultivable.
