Shigella Rapid test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Shigella in stool samples in order to detect shigellosis in infected human.
Clinical syndromes in humans caused by infection with Shigella are divided into S. dysenteriae, S. flexneri, S. boydii and S. sonnei, and a range of clinical syndromes, including diarrhoeal disease, fever and stomach cramps. Shigellosis are associated with poor sanitation, contaminated food and water, and crowded living conditions and usually resolves in 5 to 7 days. The predominant serogroups of Shigella are particularly common and it causes recurrent problems in settings where hygiene is poor and can sometimes sweep through entire communities. The Shigella Rapid test kit provides a rapid detection of Shigella directly from the fecal samples.
