Syndromic Diarrhea Pathogen Panel

The Genesis Labs Syndromic Diarrhea Pathogen Panel uses polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology to test for up to twenty gastroenteritis-associated pathogens in five clinically relevant categorizations. A single sample allows the physician to order testing under the following categorizations: Enterics, Extended Enterics, Parasites, Enteric Virals, C. Diff, or any combination of the five individual batteries. This algorithmic approach provides the same unparalleled clinical certainty and patient care as the Genesis Labs Expanded Diarrhea Pathogen Panel, but allows the care provider to narrow the series of tests based on patient history, clinical expertise, complimentary testing methodologies, etc.

Genesis Labs Syndromic Diarrhea Pathogen Panel Targets

  • Norovirus GI/GII
  • Rotavirus A
  • Sapovirus (I, II, IV, and V)

Targeted Enteric Parasite Panel

  • Clostridium difficile (Toxin A/B) / positive reflex to active toxin detection assay*

*The detection of toxigenic Clostridium difficile (for toxins A/B) on the Genesis Lab Diarrhea Pathogen Panel indicates the presence of genes that encode for enterotoxin A/B but not the toxins themselves. Therefore, the detection of toxigenic Clostridium difficile without the presence of the toxins (A/B) could suggest a carrier state with no active toxin production. Detection of both toxigenic Clostridium difficile and the active toxin would be consistent with Clostridium difficile illness (CDI) if clinically suspected. Genesis Lab reflexes all detected toxigenic Clostridium difficile results to a second EIA-based assay which reports the presence or absence of the actively secreted toxins, A and B. A multistep algorithm for diagnosis of CDI which encompasses detection of the bacterium, the toxin, and the presence of inflammation (ie. calprotectin or lactoferrin) is currently recommended by many experts for definite CDI diagnosis and differentiation from carrier states.
