Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) and Antibiotic Resistance Panel
Required Documents for UTI Testing:
Helpful Documents for UTI Testing:
This qPCR panel tests urine samples and can detect the presence of 17 bacteria and 36 antibiotic resistance genes down to low colony-forming unit (cfu) numbers that culturing is unable to detect.
Results are formatted in an easy-to-read report that helps guide the physician in treating their patient for a urinary tract infection. Based on the presence of bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes in a patient’s sample, it can be determined which antibiotics are likely to be effective or ineffective in treating the infection. An absence of detection does not imply the absence of microorganisms other than those listed, however, and does not exclude the possibility that the target sequence is present below the limit of detection.
The UTI Diagnostic Report does not take into consideration patient history, drug-drug interactions, drug sensitivity, and/or allergies. It is the responsibility of the physician to determine appropriate drug and dosing choices based on all available data.
