Gastrointestinal Testing
Antibodies for the detection of gastrointestinal
pathogens in stool samples

Acute gastroenteritis is a common syndrome that is generally caused by a virus, parasite or food-borne bacteria. Diagnosis of the intestinal pathogen requires the detection of the organism in the feces, duodenal fluid, or small intestine. Traditional methods of fecal examination are labor intensive and require skilled technicians. In recent years, antigen detection assays that work using stool samples, have gained popularity due to their specificity, speed, and ease-of-use.

Meridian offers a large range of antibodies to gastrointestinal pathogens which have been validated to work in various types of immunoassays. Several of these products are currently being used in commercial diagnostic assays to detect these pathogens in stool samples. Download a flyer today to learn more!
