Infectious diarrhea is the second most common complaint among patients who seek medical attention. Beyond being an aggravation, diarrhea can be a serious health concern that is caused by a variety of bacteria, viruses and parasites. The treatment decisions that your physician makes can be strongly influenced by what type of pathogen is responsible. Despite tremendous progress in both diagnosis and treatment, infectious diarrhea remains one of the leading causes of illness and death worldwide. Depending on the complaints that you share with your physician, pathogens may be underestimated as a cause of diarrhea because of the difficulty recognizing these pathogens in the laboratory. Gastro Dx™ quickly and accurately identifies a broad range of potential bacterial, viral or parasitic pathogens. Paired with our powerful Antibiotic Resistance Dx™ panel, VolenteDx detects potential bacterial antibiotic resistance, so effective supportive and antibiotic treatment can begin as early as possible.
