MicroGenDX, the world leader in Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) in microbial identification took the podium an unprecedented three times at the largest and most reputable orthopedic conference in the world held by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS).
A new era in diagnosis of orthopedic infections has begun,” says Javad Parvizi, MD “At last we have an alternative to the primitive, inaccurate, and costly technique of culture. NGS elevates the science of microbiology into the 21st century and is changing the lives of patients.”
MicroGenDX Laboratories equipped a multicenter study with its gold standard NGS test to investigate the persistence of Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI). Renowned orthopedic surgeon Javad Parvizi, MD will take the podium at American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) to discuss results of the study to show how NGS is revolutionizing the microbial diagnosis of chronic infections in orthopedics.
MicroGenDX, the world leader in providing Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) in microbial identification, processed samples in the groundbreaking study “Next Generation Sequencing for the Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Knee Infection: A Multicenter Investigation” led by the Rothman Institute. The study recently accepted the Eastern Orthopaedic Association’s Musculoskeletal Infection Award and further evidenced that advanced molecular diagnostic testing gives hope to patients suffering from devastating chronic infections.
