The CDSA test can assist patient and practitioner to develop earlier, more effective preventive interventions, improve the timing and precision of treatments and reduce the risk of clinical relapse in certain groups of patients. It will also allow physicians to better evaluate and refer the medical necessity for more invasive procedures such as colonoscopy.


PCR testing is a sensitive method for the detection of ten major enteric pathogens. The faecal PCR test detects parasite and bacterial DNA, making it a more accurate technique than a standard Micro, Culture and Sensitivity (MC&S) that would normally be requested by conventional laboratories.


The faecal PCR profile is capable of rapid, specific and sensitive detection of the bacterial and parasitic pathogens most commonly responsible for causing infectious and chronic gastroenteritis that may otherwise go undetected by traditional microbiological techniques. PCR is based on molecular screening of parasites rather than detection of parasites based on examination of stool under a microscope.
