Next-Gen Sequencing Benefits Urinary Catheter Patients

About one in five hospital patients in the United States have a urinary catheter, making it one of the most common indwelling devices among hospitalized patients1. A survey conducted by CDC in 20112 found that 45-79% of adult patients in critical care units have urinary catheters. Therefore, the use of urinary catheters is exceptionally prevalent in hospitals.  Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), a form of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), is the most commonly occurring health condition associated with the use of urinary catheters. According to the CDC, about 75% of hospital-acquired UTIs are CAUTIs, and prolonged use of urinary catheters […]

Next-Generation Sequencing Facilitates Diagnosis of Mycobacterium Infections

Proper identification of the causative agent in question is critical to ensure appropriate and effective treatment since drug susceptibility profiles can differ drastically among subspecies. Depending on the specific mycobacterial species present in a sample, antibiotic treatment will differ significantly.

NGS Used in Award Winning Studies

Next-Generation Sequencing Used in 3 Award-Winning Studies

In several recent award-winning studies, researchers relied on MicroGenDX’s next-generation sequencing DNA diagnostic testing (NGS testing) to precisely test infections for the presence of key compounds. Without NGS testing, there is a potential that these researchers would not have been able to adequately detect these various substances, which would hinder their ability to conduct their respective studies. What Is Next-Generation Sequencing DNA Diagnostics? MicroGenDX’s next-generation sequencing testing is a type of molecular diagnostics that “extracts DNA from a sample to look for the presence of more than 50,000 species of bacteria and fungi in its database.”1 This process ensures that […]
