STOOL PREPROCESSING DEVICE

Stool preprocessing for molecular testing

Stool preprocessing device enabling standardized stool sample preparation for nucleic acid extraction of viruses, bacteria and parasites in about 5 minutes.

  • Just 5 minutes hands-on time
  • Standardized, validated for qualitative & quantitative applications
  • Entirely closed safe system

Stool samples are among the most difficult and time-consuming clinical samples to process for molecular biology assays. This is now a thing of the past thanks to bioMérieux’s new 4-step Stool Preprocessing Device.

The stool preprocessing device is a stool sampling and pre-treatment device designed to prepare stool samples for molecular biology assays in just 5 minutes of hands-on time.

Standardize your stool bench for molecular testing

Gain the confidence of standardized preprocessing.

  • Sampling, calibration, homogenization and filtration: all in one device
  • Validated for qualitative and quantitative applications

Study shows reproducible quantification and better limit of detection (LOD) of Adenovirus with the Stool Preprocessing Device:
“Our results showed that the device reproducibly quantified HAdV DNA in stool samples when using different extraction and amplification systems. In addition, the performance of the Stool Preprocessing Device was not affected by the stool form as estimated with the Bristol scale. Compared to the laboratory's routine preprocessing technique, the Stool Preprocessing Device provided a better LOD and increased slightly the detection rate of HAdV-infected samples. In the routine monitoring of patients, the Stool Preprocessing Device enables the detection of HAdV replication in the gastrointestinal tract earlier and for longer time periods.”
