Gastrointestinal infections are a major cause of diarrheal illness worldwide and result in millions of emergency department visits and hospitalizations annually.

Clinicians have often utilized a combination of several types of testing to reach a diagnosis consisting of cultures, microscopy, antigen detection and colonoscopy. These tests require rigid collection techniques and are labor intensive, time consuming, and often inconclusive.

Rapid and accurate detection of culprit pathogens is vital for patients to receive appropriate therapy and take proper infection control measures to prevent the progression and spread of disease.
