Urinary Tract Infection Test
Real-time PCR is far more sensitive than conventional Microbiology culture to detect uropathogens, which include bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
PCR does not rely on the time consuming microbial growth for results. Pathogen detection, identification, and antibiotic sensitivity are achieved in one reaction.
Superior detection of polymicrobial infections and difficult-to-culture bacteria.
Recent antibiotic use by patient does not affect results.
No need for refrigeration. Urine is stable in collection vial at room temperature
