Inverness Medical Innovations Launches New FDA Cleared C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE(TM) Rapid Test
Date:3/30/2009

e number of patients at risk for C. difficile infection is substantial. At present, the incidence of infection has reached epidemic proportions. Recently-released results from the "National Prevalence Study of Clostridium difficile in US Healthcare Facilities" indicate that the rate of infection, or colonization, is 6.5 to 20 times greater than previous estimates.

The C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE(TM) test offered by Inverness Medical is the only device that simultaneously detects both C. difficile glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) and C. difficile toxins A and B in one simple assay. It can be used for screening while also confirming the presence of toxigenic C. difficile strains. The test provides results in less than 30 minutes from fecal samples, enabling rapid diagnosis and initiation of appropriate patient management. With use of a C. difficile rapid test, patients can be effectively isolated at an earlier stage of illness, reducing the risk of cross contamination and widespread outbreaks.

The C. difficile antigen glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) used in the test is common to all strains of C. difficile and has been identified as an excellent screening marker for the infection. The new C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE(TM) test, developed and manufactured by TECHLAB(R), Inc. in Blacksburg, VA, provides a more complete picture of the patient's disease state within one single test format with quicker time to results and higher negative predictive value (less false negative results) when compared to alternative existing testing methods.
