UTI PATHOGEN DETECTION
Urinary Tract Infection is a very common bacteria I or fungal infection responsible for more than 15 million office and emergency room visits
each year in the United States.
We now offer a new solution from our labs to pathogen detection in UTls,
Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction for Urinary Tract Microbiota (qPCR).
Using the latest molecular biology techniques and methods, our
laboratories are able to use the genetic material of the pathogen
(DNA, RNA) to accurately identify the species of the pathogen and to
detect resistance genes expressed by the pathogen to certain pharmacotherapies.
Verification data demonstrates qPCR is over 25% more accurate when
compared to traditional culture-based methods of detection.
RESPIRATORY PATHOGEN DETECTION (RPP)
Respiratory tract infections (RTls) are the most common, and potentially
most severe, of infections treated by health care practitioners. Lower RTls
along with influenza, are the most common cause of death by
infection in the United States. Identifying the causative pathogen(s)
rapidly and accurately is key in deciding on a proper treatment protocol.
We now offer a new solution from our labs to pathogen detection in RTls,
Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction for Respiratory Tract Microbiota.
Using the latest molecular biology techniques, our laboratories are able to use the genetic material of the pathogen (DNA, RNA) to accurately identify the
species of the pathogen.
Our laboratories uses state of the art laboratory technique and the most advanced technology available, LC-MS/MS (Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry), to provide clear and accurate results with a rapid turnaround time.
