AN ADVANCED UTI TEST THAT QUICKLY IDENTIFIES PERSONALIZED ANTIBIOTIC OPTIONS
A urinary tract infection (also called a UTI) is one of the most common infections worldwide and can impact anyone of any age. In fact, 20-40% of females with an initial UTI will experience a second UTI.
In cases suspected of having a UTI, a standard urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity test are commonly ordered to identify the antibiotic most likely to kill those bacteria. The problem is that this test can identify common bacteria but misses many other organisms that are known to cause UTIs.
