Wound

Testing by PCR is the personalized solution for diagnosis of a wound infection

  • Traditional cultures fail to grow more than 85% of organisms identified in chronic wounds. Cultures also have limitations which render them almost irrelevant for the diagnosis of polymicrobial clinical and biofilm infections.
  • Identifies poly-microbial infections.
  • Includes Resistance Gene Analysis to assist with therapeutic selection.

Comprehensive panel tests for the most common pathogens infecting wounds and soft skin.

Testing by PCR identifies causative organism/bacteria/pathogen by its DNA/RNA, which makes it possible to personalize antimicrobial therapy in wound care patients.
