When your pet, racehorse, or other animal is sick with a suspected infection turn to the best of infection detection technology in the form of Next-Generation DNA Sequencing. The MicroGenDX Animal Test kit comes with a wide range of sampling supplies to sample the animal where the problem lies. All samples sent to the MicroGenDX laboratory will be combined into one and will result in one test result.
Traditional laboratory cultures, which attempt grow the microbes from your urine sample in a lab, often fail to identify the bacteria or fungi that make up your infection. MicroGenDX combines two advanced technologies to test your urine sample instead. One is called “next-generation sequencing” (NGS), which uses a database of over 50,000 bacteria and fungi to identify all of the microbes in your nail sample with 99% accuracy over 3-5 days. The other is called qualitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), which can more quickly identify common microbes causing prostatitis or epididymitis in just 24-48 hours.
A chronic wound can be a sore or cut that doesn’t heal normally. It could be the result of several things, including traumatic injury, poor circulation, increased bacteria count, abnormal cells, or improper treatment. A wound is generally considered chronic if it’s shown no serious progress toward healing after 30 to 40 days. In fact, some chronic wounds can take years or decades to heal. Read More
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of the urinary system – the kidneys, bladder, ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder) or urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body).
UTIs are usually either “upper” or “lower,” depending on where the infection is located. The most common are lower UTIs, which infect the bladder and can cause it to become inflamed (these are referred to as “cystitis”).
In most cases, these bladder infections are caused by bacteria, though they can sometimes be caused by certain viruses or fungi (yeast). Read more
