Recalcitrant infections

State-of-the-art qPCR + NGS provides actionable diagnostics that can bring an end to the cycle of frustration and pain a chronically-infected UTI, prostate, or implant patient endures. Choose qPCR + NGS when diagnosing:

  • Culture-negative infections
  • Patients not responding to current treatment
  • Cases where other causes have been ruled out

MicroGenDX knows urological DNA diagnostics

MicroGenDX is the only molecular lab that has:

  • A published randomized outcome study showing its test is superior to culture, as defined by relief of symptoms.
  • Identified over 4,000 different microbial species in urine, with more than 70,000 urological samples processed.
  • Published data showing 96.1% concordance with culture and 11 years of CAP proficiency test results with 99.2% accuracy.

NGS tells us it’s not always E.coli

Ecoli Pie Graph

E. coli may be the dominant cause for acute UTI — but for recurrent UTIs, causes are highly variable and ideal candidates for qPCR + NGS from MicroGenDX.

Among the 70,000 urine samples processed, MicroGenDX identified about 4,000 urine bacteria species and found E.coli the dominant species in only 28% of cases.
