Why Molecular Dx is Superior to Traditional Testing

Clinical Utility of molecular diagnostic testing is recognized by the American College of Gastroenterology:

“Several well-designed studies show that molecular testing now surpasses all other approaches for the routine diagnosis of diarrhea. Molecular diagnostic tests can provide a more comprehensive assessment of disease etiology by increasing the diagnostic yield compared with conventional diagnostic tests. They are also faster, providing results in hours rather than days.”

Genetic testing is a proven valuable tool for physicians caring for individuals with severe symptoms, have weakened immune system and/or those with advanced age.

Stool cultures have been the standard diagnostic tool for determining the microbial etiology of suspected bacterial infectious diarrhea, however, they are time consuming and have low positive.

Multiplex molecular testing has emerged as valid, fast and accurate diagnostic tool for acute infectious gastroenteritis.

iQ Genetix Benefits

iQ Genetix Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel

iQ Genetix Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel quickly identifies enteropathogenic viruses, bacteria, and parasites responsible for gastroenteritis. It simultaneously detects antibiotic resistance genes without risk of false negatives, so effective treatment can begin sooner. The panel utilizes a multiplex quantitative Real-Time PCR approach to rapidly analyze your patient’s sample. It precisely detects the pathogens during single or coinfections and identifies antibiotic drug resistance in one single test versus multiple tests. Test results allow providers to prescribe timely and effective anti-infective medications. It also facilitates antibiotic stewardship by pinpointing situations for which antibiotics should be avoided.
