C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE®

The C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE® test provides a comprehensive diagnostic picture unlike any other standalone test. Incoming samples are simultaneously tested for GDH and Toxins A & B as recommended by the updated IDSA/SHEA Guidelines1 and ESCMID Guidelines2, providing actionable C. difficile results in less than 30 minutes.

1. Updated IDSA/SHEA guidelines published in 2018 recommend:

  • Against the use of NAAT alone when there are no pre-agreed institutional criteria for patient stool submission, due to inadequate positive predictive value
  • Use of a stool toxin test as part of a multi-step algorithm (ie, glutamate dehydrogenase [GDH] plus toxin; GDH plus toxin, arbitrated by nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT]; or NAAT plus toxin) for all specimens received in the clinical laboratory whether there are or are no pre-agreed institutional criteria for patient stool submission.
  • Or screening samples simultaneously with both a GDH and toxin A/B EIA with an assay that includes both these targets in one system (C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE®).

2. Updated ESCMID guidelines published in 2016 recommend:

  • Against the use of a single rapid test as a standalone test, due to inadequate positive predictive value.
  • The use of a 2-step algorithm starting with either GDH EIA or NAAT. Samples with a negative first test result can be reported as negative. Samples with a positive first test result should be tested further with a Toxin A & B EIA.
  • Or screen samples simultaneously with both a GDH and toxin A/B EIA with an assay that includes both these targets in one system (C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE®).
