  • Descripción del producto
    The Verigene Clostridium difficile Nucleic Acid Test (CDF) is a qualitative, multiplexed in vitro diagnostic test for the rapid detection of toxin A (tcdA), toxin B (tcdB), and tcdC gene sequences of toxigenic strains Clostridium difficile and for presumptive identification of PCR ribotype 027 strains from unformed (liquid or soft) stool specimens collected from patients suspected of having C. difficile infection (CDI). Presumptive identification of the PCR ribotype 027 strain of C. difficile is by detection of the binary toxin (cdt) gene sequence and the single base pair deletion at nucleotide 117 in the tcdC gene. The tcdC gene encodes for a negative regulator in C. difficile toxin production. The test is performed on the Verigene System and utilizes automated specimen preparation and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification, combined with a nanoparticle-based array hybridization assay to detect the toxin gene sequences associated with toxin-producing C. difficile.
