Urinary Tract Infection

Unlike typical UTI diagnoses in the past, today’s urinary tract infection can be much more complex than just the presence of E. Coli. Mutating pathogens, possible co-infection, and the development of antibiotic resistance all highlight the benefits of using PCR technology to diagnose a UTI.

Urinary Tract Infection Info


Most commonly diagnosed illness in older adults. 70% of UTIs caused by E. Coli in past; simple to treat
Emerging problems with Recurrent and Persistent Infections
Development of MDROs and Biofilms have complicated the clinical diagnosis
Advanced diagnostics are needed to detect culprit pathogen that may not grow in culture due to Biofilm and identify antibiotic resistant genes
Providers can no longer assume first or second-line antibiotics will work
