Infectious diarrhoeal diseases are among the most common forms of illness and can be triggered by a variety of viral, bacterial and parasitic pathogens. According to the Robert Koch Institut (RKI), gastroenteritis caused by noroviruses, rotaviruses and Campylobacter species were among the five most common notifiable infectious diseases in Germany in 2019.
Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the stomach and small intestine; occasionally, the large intestine is also affected by the inflammation. Symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain and sometimes fever. Gastrointestinal infections usually clear up on their own within a few days; however, they can be potentially dangerous for certain populations such as newborns, young children, immunocompromised or elderly people. The different pathogens cannot be distinguished from each other by their symptoms. A quick and reliable clinical diagnosis is therefore very important – the shorter the time for a diagnosis, the lower the risk of long-term complications.
The multiplex real-time PCR kits within the RIDA®GENE product line detect the most important pathogens through simple and rapid screening. In addition to specific pathogen detection, the sensitive tests include an internal control (ICD or ICR). This control is used for extraction and/or amplification control. Since the tests can be used on all common real-time devices and have the same temperature profile, it is possible to check several parameters with one PCR test. As required by DIN ISO 13485, the CE-certified tests are evaluated through regular participation in INSTAND and QCMD Proficiency Tests.
The products for the detection of infectious diarrhoeal diseases are available worldwide through R-Biopharm.
