Faecal Multiplex PCR is used to detect ten of the major enteric pathogens – Salmonella sp, Campylobacter sp, Yersinia enterocolitica, Shigella sp, Giardia sp, Aeromonas sp, Blastocystis sp, Entamoeba histolytica, Dientamoeba sp and Cryptosporidium sp. These particular pathogens are responsible for both viral and protozoal gastroenteritis, which can often be an underlying cause of various gastrointestinal and chronic health conditions.
Identification and eradication of these pathogens are critical to the success of any treatment plan. By identifying specific pathogens, a targeted and pathogen-specific treatment approach can be implemented, increasing treatment success rates and reducing treatment times.
Results take 3 weeks to be processed and require a consultation before results are released. The test kit will be posted out to you upon purchase.
