How can PCR testing help ENTs?

GENETWORx combines advancements in molecular diagnostics and medication efficacy data into actionable patient-centered reports to help ENTs determine the most appropriate treatment regimen for each patient suffering from sinusitis and otomycosis.

Sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection, occurs when the nasal cavities (“sinuses”) become inflamed and block the passage of mucus, resulting in an infection.

ENT Pathogen Panel: Sinus Applications

According to the CDC, the number of adults annually diagnosed with sinusitis is 28.9 million.[1] While the primary treatment for chronic sinus infections is antibiotics,[2] diagnosing and prescribing the right antibiotic to a patient can help to speed recovery and ease a patient’s pain. Typically, the cause of a sinus infection is diagnosed by examination, imaging/allergy tests and cultures.[3] With the GENETWORx ENT Pathogen Panel, practitioners can receive patient results for more than 30 pathogens with just one swab within 48 hours.

Additionally, GENETWORX’s ENT Pathogen Panel report provides Antibiotic Resistance information specific to a patient, providing ENTs with actionable patient-centered reports to help physicians determine the most appropriate treatment regimen for each patient.

The PCR Testing Advantage

Detection

GENETWORx can detect more than 30 different types of wound pathogens and deliver 99% accurate results within 24-48 hours of lab sample receipt.

Accuracy

GENETWORx molecular pathogen testing is more accurate than standard culture testing.  Our molecular pathogen testing detects anaerobic organisms growing deep inside a wound that standard cultures often miss. [4]

Amplification

Using a molecular approach, amplification of testing sample genetic material is faster than standard culture growth and delivers increased sensitivity and a quicker result. [5]

Speed

Our rapid turnaround time is within 24-28 hours from laboratory receipt.

Simplicity

Our simple to read report gives clinicians quick, actionable intelligence to make better treatment decisions.

Identification

Ability to identify pathogens when the patient is on empiric antibiotic treatment.

With molecular testing, not only can you receive a clear picture of the type and percent of pathogens causing the infection, in many cases, you can identify antimicrobial resistance.  With the power of molecular testing, you can select the optimal medication therapy for your patient, improve treatment outcomes and reduce healthcare spend.

Targeted Treatment

ENT Pathogen Panel: Ear Applications

ENTs face challenges diagnosing Otomycosis, a fungal ear infection, since it can co-exist with bacterial ear infection. Properly identifying the type and/or amount of bacteria or fungus present helps ENTs to properly treat patients. GENETWORx’s ENT Pathogen Panel helps ENTs to properly diagnose the root cause of an ear infection within 48 hours.

For those with chronic ear infections who are frequently prescribed antibiotics, GENETWORx’s Personalized Medicine offers physicians patient specific reporting on antibiotic resistance. This allows ENTs to practice Antibiotic Stewardship when treating patients.

By partnering with GENETWORx, healthcare professionals can get quick, accurate results with one simple swab.

How? Once GENETWORx receives a sample, 99% accurate results with pathogens clearly identified and defined are provided within 24-48 hours of receipt.
