Using State-of-the-art technology (qPCR+NGS Next Generation Sequencing) provides actionable diagnostics that can bring an end to the cycle of frustration and pain of chronically infected UTIs, Prostatitis and Epididymitis.
MicroGenDX offers you two detailed diagnostic reports. The first, a qPCR report, provides total bacterial load, detection of common pathogens and antimicrobial resistance genes. However, qPCR will only detect the commonly known microbes selected for a qPCR panel, because of this, qPCR by itself can miss the dominant species in the sample up to 60% of the time.
The advantage of MicroGenDX UTI profile is the second report uses next-generation sequencing (NGS) . NGS technology matches microbes detected in samples to a database of 50,000+ species, providing a clear representation of the relative abundance of microbes in each sample, offering insight into dominant pathogens and a more complete picture. In addition, the qPCR+NGS report offers antimicrobial resistance genes for all major classes of antimicrobials to aid in treatment considerations

When should I use
This test is ideal for patients with
UTI symptoms but negative culture results
Previous Antibiotic therapy – still have symptoms
