UTI Panel

UTI ID Panel

MedArbor’s comprehensive RT-PCR molecular UTI ID panel provides results faster, making data more relevant, meaningful and reliable.  Testing with high sensitivity and specificity identifies pathogens difficult to grow in standard cultures, reducing “no growth” results and allowing for polymicrobial detection.

We know better patient outcomes are achieved through Fast, Accurate and Reliable laboratory results.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) –
Molecular Technology

  • Diagnosis based on the detection of specific DNA strands
  • Identifies antimicrobial resistance markers
  • Identifies Fungi
  • Detects polymicrobial infections
  • Infection based treatment guidance
  • Superior test for re-current UTI’s
  • Provides Enhanced Treatment Guidance*

Now you can provide patients with the quickest and most accurate diagnosis possible.

  • 12 to 24 hour turn-around time from the time the lab receives the sample
  • Virtually no “contaminated” results
  • Decreased progression of infection & reduced healthcare costs
  • Improves antibiotic stewardship
  • Enhances the ability to appropriately assess and manage UTIs

*Enhanced Treatment Guidance provides clinicians with CDC and FDA recommended multidrug resistant treatment options based on the presence of resistance makers detected by PCR.
