    Description

    The Problem:

    Acute gastroenteritis (AGE; defined as diarrhea or vomiting) is a major cause of illness in the United States.  AGE is caused by a variety of viral, bacterial, and parasitic pathogens among other noninfectious causes.  Each year, 31 major known pathogens acquired in the United States caused an estimated 9.4 million episodes of foodborne illness.  One of the dangers of food poisoning and gastroenteritis is the loss of fluids resulting from diarrhea and vomiting, which can lead to dehydration.  Accurate detection of the causative agent is important.

    A New Tool in the Fight Against Food Poisoning and Acute Gastroenteritis:

    MicroPathID – Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP) – Uses real-time PCR to identify the 17 viral, bacterial and parasitic species associated with gastroenteritis.

    Detect and identify 90% of the causative bacterial, viral and parasitic agents of gastroenteritis.
