The RIDASCREEN® Giardia test is an enzyme immunoassay for the qualitative determination of Giardia lamblia in stool samples.
Giardia lamblia are flagellate parasites that cause infections in the small intestines of humans after the oral uptake of Giardia cysts. Because it is found worldwide, the Giardia lamblia pathogen is a significant cause of chronic diarrhea, in particular in medical cases related to travel. The infection occurs after ingestion of the cysts in contaminated food or water.
