How can PCR nail testing help?

Traditional diagnosis for onychomycosis includes a microscopy and culture testing. Results can take up to two weeks.[1]

With GENETWORx there’s no need to wait. You’ll get fast and 99% accurate results for bacteria and fungus — within 24-48 hours of sample receipt.

We are experts in molecular diagnostic testing, a laboratory science that unites the precision of molecular biology with laboratory testing.[2] Our focus is guided by PCR technology, which amplifies DNA found in small testing samples to ensure a sample is robust enough to drive testing accuracy.[3]

PCR-based testing has been shown to increase sensitivity, specificity, and speed. A recent Journal of Medical Microbiology study found “PCR increased species-specific detection of dermatophytes by 21.1%, leading to a threefold increase as compared to culture alone.”[4]

An estimated 1 in 10 people have toenail fungus, according to the Cleveland Clinic. After age 70, that estimate increases to 1 in 2.[5]

The PCR Testing Advantage

Detection

GENETWORx can detect more than 30 different types of 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 that standard cultures often miss. [6]

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. [7]

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.

99% Accurate PCR

GENETWORx PCR tests offer 99% accurate results.

Once GENETWORx receives a sample, clearly defined results are provided within 24-48 hours of receipt.
