CAMPYLOBACTER QUIK CHEK

Worldwide, Campylobacter species are the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis, with 400-500 million cases of diarrhea each year1.  Campylobacter–associated gastroenteritis is estimated to affect nearly 1 million people a year in the USA2.

The CAMPYLOBACTER QUIK CHEK ™ test allows detection of C. jejuni and C. coli, the species most commonly associated with human disease. It also cross-reacts with C. upsaliensis, C. lari, and C. helveticus. The CAMPYLOBACTER QUIK CHEK ™ test can be performed in less than 30 minutes, does not rely on bacterial viability, and can be performed on the bench-top with samples that have been exposed to air7.
