Application Note: Evaluation of the First Microarray-Based Molecular Screening Test for Eight Gastrointestinal Pathogens Using the Automated NanoCHIP Platform
23 May 2014
Gastroenteritis is a challenging syndrome to diagnose clinically and microbiologically. The Savyon Gastrointestinal Panel (GIP) is a block-based multiplex nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) that detects eight enteric pathogens. The objective of this study was to assess the analytical sensitivity of the GIP assay and to compare the detection capability of the Savyon GIP for diarrhoeal samples positive by conventional methods (culture/microscopy/ELISA).
