Meridian Bioscience is a fully integrated life science company that manufactures and markets a broad range of innovative diagnostic test kits. Their products provide accuracy, simplicity and speed for the early diagnosis and treatment of common medical conditions, such as C. difficileH. pylori, foodborne diseases and respiratory infections. Meridian diagnostic products require little or no special equipment.

Meridian has strong market positions in the areas of gastrointestinal infections, serology, parasitology and fungal disease diagnosis.  For example, The CDC’s new guidelines recommend that laboratories perform Shiga toxin testing on all stools submitted for enteric pathogen testing. Meridian has always been a leader in the field of E. coli testing. Meridian was the first to provide an EIA microwell to detect Shiga toxin produced by E. coli (Premier™ EHEC), and Meridian has raised the bar again with the introduction of the rapid ImmunoCard STAT!® EHEC.
