Gastrointestinal Infections

Collection devices to tackle gastroenteritis

Gastrointestinal (GI) infections account for a large number of acute and chronic diseases caused by pathogens spread via food, water, and from person to person.


GI infections severe burden

Most gastrointestinal infections are caused by viruses, but bacteria and parasites are important contributors to acute and chronic illnesses. According to the WHO, these infections kill approximately 2 million people each year: the impact of these diseases is particularly dramatic in developing countries, where diarrheal diseases cause enormous morbidity and mortality, especially in children.


The poo-rfect collection devices

The failure to identify the etiological agent of many gastrointestinal infections – again, mainly in third world countries – is one of the biggest obstacles to overcome to treat these diseases appropriately. Copan can help you with that!

Many of our collection and transport kits leverage our patented FLOQSwabs®: discover why it’s a plus!
