  1. Cynthia

    I have had a lot of success finding out what the specific bacteria is that is related to sympoms that were not being detected with a standard test for years! It has been a huge help.

  2. Gloria

    This test has detected bacteria that has ruined my life and failed to be picked up by regular testing at physician’s offices. I am so grateful for this kit and for MicroGen

Suffering from chronic or reoccurring urinary tract infections (UTIs) or having been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC), means you need answers about the true source of your infection. Traditional laboratory cultures, which attempt to 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. “Next-generation sequencing” (NGS), uses a database of over 50,000 bacteria and fungi to identify all of the microbes in your urine sample with 99% accuracy over 3-5 days. Qualitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), is the other test that we run and can more quickly identify common microbes causing UTI or IC in just 24-48 hours. If you are suffering from pain while urinating, bladder pain, a persistent need to urinate, dribbling, pain during sex, or other UTI or IC symptoms, then now may be the time to get a urine test that uses qPCR and NGS.

For an additional charge, you can add a urine test for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) – also called sexually transmitted Infections (STIs) – to detect Gonorrhea, T. vaginalis (“trich”), Chlamydia, and Mycoplasma genitalium.

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system – your 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).

Both women and men get bladder infections, but they are much more common among women. For example, among people between the ages of 20 and 50, bacterial UTIs are about 50 times more common among women than men. In people older than 50, there’s less of a difference between the sexes. Read more
