CerTest Clostridium difficile antigen GDH one step card test is a coloured chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Clostridium difficile Glutamate Dehydrogenase (GDH) in stool samples
CerTest Clostridium difficile antigen GDH card test offers a simple and highly sensitive screening assay to make a presumptive diagnosis of Clostridium difficile infection.
C. difficile is the most common cause of health care-associated diarrhoea in developed countries and is a major source of nosocomial morbidity and mortality worldwide.
Clostridium difficile Glutamate Dehydrogenase (GDH) is an enzyme produced in large quantities by all toxigenic and non-toxigenic strains, making it an excellent marker for the organism. The toxigenic culture (TC) is used as the gold standard technique to determine Clostridium difficile infection. This method consists in culture and isolation of C. difficile from faeces, followed by toxin testing of the isolate, a labour-intensive assay to obtain a result.
