Faecal Pathogen Screening System Implemented at Royal Sussex
The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton has implemented the Serosep 'EntericBio' Lean Process for faecal pathogen screening, using real time multiplex PCR to provide negative results on stools within two working days.
The EntericBio system is a molecular automated platform for the detection of enteric pathogens’ DNA directly from stool samples. The test targets Salmonella sp, Shigella sp, Campylobacter sp and Verotoxin-producing organisms such as E. coli (VTEC) in a PCR assay that allows the issue of negative reports on samples within two working days.
Visit the Brighton and Sussex University hospitals website - www.bsuh.nhs.uk - to find out how they have implemented EntericBio into their bacterial enteric pathogen reporting system.
