The FilmArray Gastrointestinal Panel

OmniPathology introduces our comprehensive stool pathogen panel.

The FilmArray Gastrointestinal Panel from BioFire Diagnostics is FDA-cleared PCR testing technology and provides an overall sensitivity and specificity of 98.5% and 99.3%, respectively. Rapid and accurate diagnostic testing for gastrointestinal pathogens may help identify which patients to isolate or cohort faster and determine if antibiotic therapy is appropriate.
