MOLECULAR TESTING 
RAPID AND ACCURATE RESULTS WITH BETTER TREATMENT OUTCOMES

Molecular Testing provides rapid and accurate results with better treatment outcomes! Make informed medical decisions quickly with results in 24 hours for a broad range of pathogens and potential antibiotic resistance.

Benefits of Molecular Diagnosis Testing
  • Greater diagnostic sensitivity to the culture
  • 24-hour turn-around-time
  • A fewer number of false negative reports
  • Provides comprehensive drug resistance panel to identify key genetic elements that impact treatment
  • Detects Bacteria, Viruses, and Fungus
  • Great addition to Antibiotic Stewardship and Infection Control Policies

 

Benefits of Molecular Diagnosis Testing
  • Simple non-invasive swab collection
  • Pre-analytic handling and temperature have no effect on the specimen
  • All shipping supplies and labels are provided

 

Quantitative Real-Time PCR Technology
  • More accurate results – cultures have an error rate of 33%
  • Detects 99.9% of organisms – versus only 5% of all bacteria can grow in a culture
  • Rapid and accurate diagnosis
Benefits of Molecular Diagnosis Testing
  • UTIConnect (Molecular Urine Panel)
    RespiConnect (Molecular Respiratory Panel) WoundConnect (Molecular Wound Panel)
    STIConnect (Molecular Sexual Health Panel)
