LIAISON Campylobacter Completes DiaSorin Bacterial Stool-Testing Panel
DiaSorin have launched the LIAISON Campylobacter test for the market outside the US, completing their bacterial stool-testing panel that includes Clostridium, EHEC, H. pylori.
The LIAISON Campylobacter is the 8th test launched as part of our stool-testing offer and is one of the most frequently occurring bacterial agents of gastroenteritis. The true incidence of gastroenteritis due to Campylobacter is poorly known, particularly in emerging markets; studies in high-income countries have estimated the annual incidence at between 4.4 and 9.3 per 1000 population. In the US an estimated 2 million cases of Campylobacter enteritis occur annually, accounting for 5-7% of cases of gastroenteritis. At the moment laboratories mainly use fecal-culture to diagnose Campylobacter but that can take 3 days and requires careful handling of the sample, problems that the new LIAISON Campylobacter test will solve. It is important to diagnose Campylobacter in time, considering that 36% of patients with severe Campylobacter infections develop inflammatory chronic bowel syndrome (IBS) within 1–2 years. Until now, Campylobacter has been considered a lower problematic, but the technology developed by DiaSorin will allow laboratories and therefore doctors to answer in due time with an appropriate treatment in the early stage of the disease.
