HYPERdiff is an immunochromatographic test for the rapid detection of hyper-virulent strains of Clostridium difficile. O17 and O27 could be detected with this rapid test. Only 15 min. after preparing the sample are enough to read the result and to know how to proceed with the patient.

It makes sense to use the HYPERdiff test with stool samples that have been previously analysed with a test that detects standard C.difficile Toxin A and B.

- Using the 2A-Bdiff test from operon, we can differentiate between ribotype 017 and 027 strains.

- Using a different test, if HYPERdiff is positive we can know that O17 or O27 are present but we could not differenciate between them.

2A-Bdiff is an immunochromatographic test for the rapid detection of toxin A and toxin B in independent bands. Only 15 min. after preparing the sample are enough to read the result and to know how to proceed with the patient.

When toxin B is positive, you can complement the result with HYPERdiff (from operon) so you can know if hyper-virulent strains as O17 and O27 are present.
