GENETWORx ENT Panel

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

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.

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.

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.

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.[4] Properly identifying the type and/or amount of bacteria or fungus present helps ENTs to properly treat patients.[5] 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.
