New CE Marked Test Simultaneously Detects Up To 95% of Gastrointestinal Infections in Under Five Hours
Date:5/4/2011

GPP promises to be a significant advance that will improve the care of patients suffering from pathogen-induced diarrhea."

Achieving definitive diagnosis of diarrheal disease and infectious gastroenteritis traditionally requires multiple tests for which results are not available for several days. Although high risk patients such as children under the age of five, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals suffering from these diseases could benefit from rapid diagnosis and intervention, physicians may be unable to initiate treatment until a definitive diagnosis is made to avoid the potential for unnecessary and inappropriate antibiotic or therapeutic use.

"Physicians and laboratory directors consistently tell us that they need more clinically useful information for their patients and that they want that information delivered faster," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and CEO of Luminex. "Developing xTAG GPP, a robust method to quickly, accurately and actionably identify pathogens of such varied types was a significant innovation challenge, and this CE mark is a reflection of the outstanding accomplishment of our development team."

About xTAG GPP

xTAG GPP is a polymerase chain reaction-based molecular test that enables multiple analyses for nucleic acids in a single reaction well. The test kit simultaneously detects and identifies 15 parasitic, bacterial and viral pathogens isolated from a single stool sample and returns results within an unprecedented five hours.

Based on Luminex's award-winning xMAP® platform, this multiplex approach improves laboratory efficiency and productivity while lowering costs by consolidating workflows. Pathogens identified by the test include:

Viruses:

  • Adenovirus 40/41
  • Rotavirus A
  • Norovirus GI/GII

Bacteria:

  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Campyl
