CMPT is offering a Gastrointestinal Panel (GIP). This panel will cover 14 viral, bacterial, and protozoa pathogens mandated by the BC Infectious Diarrhea – Guideline for Investigation that came into effect October 27, 2022
The panel consists of sets of simulated/or patient stool samples for examination of intestinal pathogens using molecular methods sent to laboratories 2-3 times a year; each set will include at least one parasite, one virus, and one bacterial target.
Pathogens targeted by the IDP are:
Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC)
The panel will be available from our order form soon. If you would like to order the program or learn more about it, please contact CMPT.
