Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Detection, Diagnosis, and Treatment

The GENETWORx Molecular PCR UTI Test is the Solution

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for millions of physician office visits and hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations per year. Minor UTIs can often resolve on their own, but many UTIs can present issues when left untreated, resulting in further complications and even death.

With the development of multi-drug resistant organisms, clinical diagnosis of UTIs has become more complex. Up to one-third of UTIs show resistance to antibiotics. As such, the development of advanced diagnostics is critical for accurate identification of the pathogens causing the infection in your patients.

Time is of the essence because an improper diagnosis or ineffective treatment plan for a UTI could cause:

  • Ongoing discomfort
  • Chronic infections
  • Permanent kidney damage
  • Urethral narrowing in men
  • Life-threatening sepsis

Molecular PCR UTI Testing is Superior to Traditional Culture and Sensitivity Testing

Treat your patients’ UTIs safely and effectively with the GENETWORx Molecular PCR UTI test. Eliminating false negative and false positive results, the GENETWORx PCR test provides significant benefits over the traditional culture and sensitivity, including:

  • Identification of the pathogens causing the infection as well as the detection of antibiotic resistance.
  • 3-5x more sensitivity than conventional culture testing at pathogen identification.
  • Detection of polymicrobial infections caused by various combinations of viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
  • Results unaffected by concurrent antibiotic use at the time of the test.
  • Ability to conduct the urine collection by clean catch or brief swab, ideal for collecting samples from elderly or physically-limited patients.

Brief Collection Designed for
Senior Living Residents

Collecting a clean catch urine sample is not always an option with senior living residents. It can be unpleasant for the resident and your staff, and, sometimes not physically possible.

With GENETWORx as your UTI diagnostic laboratory, a swab of a wet, saturated brief is an alternative to a clean catch urine sample and provides a much easier collection process.

Fast, Accurate UTI Test Results

Traditional culture methods can take 3 or more days for results. This puts physicians in a tough position – they need to ease patients’ symptoms, but their starting point for treatment isn’t always clear off the bat. So they begin to treat UTIs analytically as they await the results, spiraling into the rabbit hole of overprescribing and antibiotic resistance. With the GENETWORx Molecular PCR UTI test, physicians are armed with detailed, personalized treatment from the start to advance patient care.

With the GENETWORx Molecular PCR UTI test, you can expect:

  • The receipt of final results within 2 days of lab receipt, 7 days a week.
  • Decreased unnecessary testing, decreased healthcare costs and improved satisfaction for your patients with faster, more accurate results.
  • Therapeutic options provided on each pathogen detected.
  • Comprehensive reporting that goes beyond the basics to ensure an accurate, thorough diagnosis and medical options.

Comprehensive UTI Reporting that Goes Beyond the Basics

The GENETWORx Molecular PCR UTI test goes beyond the basics to ensure an accurate, thorough diagnosis is possible. Physicians and patients receive detailed information on the bacteria found as well as antibiotic resistance markers, and benefit from personalized pharmacist recommended therapeutic options.  Knowledge is power, and GENETWORx arms physicians with knowledge.
