About Our Test

Urinary Tract Infection Test

ACCURATE

  • Real-time PCR is far more sensitive then conventional Microbiology culture to detect uropathogens, which include bacteria, fungi, and viruses. 

EASY

  • Standard clean catch urine collection method.
  • No need for refrigeration. Urine is stable in collection vial at room temperature. 
  • Dedicated client service individual for your office.
  • Portal-based ordering of supplies and Fedex pickup.
  • Courier pickup available

QUICK

  • Next day results

Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR)-based urinary pathogen detection provides a superior diagnostic method for UTI detection to a conventional culture-based method. Antibiotic resistance gene detection improves antimicrobial stewardship. Ultimately, it enables providers to offer timely, individualized and effective treatment.
