Send Us Your Most Challenging Cases
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 10 years of CAP proficiency test results with 99.4% accuracy.
NGS tells us it’s not always E.coli
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.
