Infectious Gastroenteritis Solutions

Several gastrointestinal pathogens cause similar, overlapping symptoms. Traditional stool testing methods are slow, labor-intensive, and lack sensitivity. Fortunately, our syndromic approach provides fast, accurate answers on a comprehensive menu of possible pathogens.

The Syndromic Approach to Infectious Gastroenteritis

The symptoms of infectious gastroenteritis can be very similar to the symptoms of inflammatory gastrointestinal disorders. That’s why it’s important to consider infectious causes when it comes to gastroenteritis. Our syndromic approach enables clinics to test for 22 possible pathogens in one fast and accurate test—giving patients concrete answers while providing clinicians the results they need to make timely, targeted treatment decisions.


For results that are fast and accurate, the BIOFIRE TORCH uses PCR technology to simultaneously test for a comprehensive grouping of targets in about an hour. For use in CLIA-moderate settings.
