Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common in the U.S. and are the second most common type of infection in the body and are the reason for more than 8 million visits to the doctor each year. About 10 in 25 women and 3 in 25 men will have symptoms of a UTI during their lifetime.

Testing by PCR is the better solution for diagnosis of an UTI:

  • Conventional culture and sensitivity testing routinely requires a few days, and sometimes a week or more
  • RDx delivers quick and rapid PCR test results within 48 hours.
  • Molecular testing is more sensitive, more accurate, more rapid, with more information delivered.
