Molecular PCR UTI & ABR Testing

UTIs are the most common bacterial infection. The elderly are particularly susceptible with direct consequences including urosepsis. The conventional urine culture suffers from suboptimal sensitivity and lengthy test time (3-5 days). In contrast, the nucleic acid amplification-based assay (quantitative PCR), offers urinary tract pathogen identification and antibiotic resistance gene detection with a sensitivity that is estimated three times higher than the bacterial culture.
