What we do

The Alimetrix® GI-Metrix

Single swab. Next day results.


Multiplex molecular assays for the simultaneous detection of bacterial, viral, and parasitic agents of gastrointestinal disease have the potential to be game changing in the management and treatment of diarrhea.


UNIQUELY OFFERED BY ALIMETRIX
28 organism calls available, with 24 distinct molecular targets for antimicrobial resistance (encompassing 9 classes of antibiotics)
Next day turn around time
Simultaneous testing of bacterial, viral, and parasitic organisms
Eliminates multiple routine complex conventional tests required to thoroughly rule out all causative agents of diarrhea
Comprehensive evaluation of antibiotic genetic resistance markers
Evidence based, clinically appropriate diagnostics
Easy, simple collection process utilizing a single swab
ACCURATE, SENSITIVE, AND SPECIFIC RESULTS LEAD TO
Accurate diagnosis of infectious causes of diarrhea
Avoidance of unnecessary antibiotics, which can result in poor outcomes such as hemolytic uremic syndrome and Salmonella carrier state. Prolonged antibiotic courses can be associated with non-infectious sequelae and immune mediated negative patient outcomes
Avoidance of downstream testing such as radiographic studies, endoscopy, and surgical interventions due to rapid availability of results
Prompt and precise reporting to communicable disease authorities for rapid indentification and mitigation of community outbreaks
