Speaker

Abstract
DATE:   February 28, 2019
TIME:    10:00am PST, 1:00pm EST
 
Over the past few years the gastroenterology diagnostic market has witnessed an increase in commercial multiplex diagnostic assays for the detection of a large array of enteric pathogens. These multiplex assays differ in many aspects, one important difference being the number of enteric pathogens that the assays detect. Updated IDSA/SHEA guidelines for the management of infectious diarrhea describe a targeted approach, directing proper test utilization for the diagnosis of infectious diarrhea. The guidelines can assist with the development of targeted testing algorithms to diagnose the enteric pathogens most likely causing disease. This patient centric targeted testing approach can be supported by using the BD MAX ™ system, which uses separate testing panels for the detection of C. difficile, bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens.
 
By the end of this presentation one will:
  • Understand how updated guidelines can be used to direct patient testing for infections diarrhea
  • Recognize the value and ability to target testing for C. difficile, bacterial, parasitic and viral pathogens.
