Abstract

Clostridium difficile is a major pathogen responsible for infectious diarrhea in healthcare settings. This presentation will review the data from a study comparing the new Simplexa® C. difficile Direct assay with our in-house two-step algorithm and two additional PCR-based assays (Great Basin, GeneXpert Infinity) in which PCR was utilized as a confirmatory rather than a direct assay.
