Rapid and accurate solution eliminates guesswork in diagnosing and treating urinary tract infections.
Urinary tract infections are one of the most commonly diagnosed illnesses in older adults and one of the leading reasons antibiotics are prescribed in long-term care facilities. Historically a super majority of UTI’s are caused by enteric microbes, a group prone to multiple drug resistance. The development of multidrug-resistant organisms has complicated the clinical diagnosis and the ease of just following the prior evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and treatment no longer exists.
UTI quickly identifies pathogens and detects potential antibiotic resistance, so effective treatment can begin sooner.
Accurate diagnosis within 24 hours with real-time PCR for pathogen identification and detection of antibiotic resistance:
- PCR, a molecular technique, can precisely analyze the genetic material of pathogens
- Provides a more definitive diagnosis than POC antigen assays
- 24-hour turnaround from specimen receipt
- Higher accuracy than conventional culture
Helps improve clinical confidence and decrease patient risks:
- Detects polymicrobial infections
- Unaffected by concurrent antibiotic use
- Identifies potential antibiotic resistance
- Aids in quick clinical decision-making
- Reduces potential unnecessary drug exposure and adverse events
