xTAG® GPP – Gastrointestinal pathogens detection
The xTAG® Gastrointestinal Pathogens Panel (GPP) kit is a multiplex molecular assay allowing the identification of several gastrointestinal pathogens: virus, bacteria and parasites.
This assay is based on the xMAP® technology of Luminex® and detects 15 targets in one reaction. This new tool allows the identification of pathogens responsible for Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) such as C. difficile or Norovirus, foodborne illness agents like E. coli or Salmonella, and common causes of diarrhea, such as Rotavirus A, Campylobacter, and Shigella.
The assay comprises 4 steps from a stool sample:
The xTAG GPP allows to:
- Detect 95% of pathogens responsible for infectious gastroenteritis
- Provide fast and accurate answers for a better patient management and monitoring of epidemics
- Decrease the cost of the patient management
The results are read on Luminex® platform 100/200™ or MAGPIX®. A dedicated software analyzes the raw data for an easy analysis.
