The Importance of C. difficile Diagnostics
The ESCMID guidelines on C. difficile state that a multistep algorithm should be used in C. difficile diagnosis and can help differentiate asymptomatic carriers from people with true C. difficile infection. The algorithm begins with a highly sensitive screen, such as GDH or PCR, followed by a toxin enzyme immunoassay (EIA).
The C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE® rapid EIA assay is cited by name as an assay that simultaneously detects GDH and toxin. One single cassette completes the multistep algorithm for accurate, rapid, cost-effective C. difficile testing.
