Lead the Way in Nail Infection Diagnosis with Advanced PCR Testing

Overcoming the Diagnostic Obstacles in Nail Infections

Diagnosing nail infections, a common yet complex task for healthcare providers, requires precise identification of the underlying pathogen. Fungal pathogens are responsible for about 50% of nail deformities, with a significant prevalence in the U.S. population. Nail disorders, including onychosis (any disease or disorder of the nails), can be caused by a variety of pathogens like bacteria and viruses, making accurate differentiation essential for effective treatment.

Symptoms such as discoloration, thickening, and brittleness are shared among various nail conditions, adding to the diagnostic challenge. Traditional culture methods often lack the speed and accuracy needed, particularly for fungal infections, which may exhibit resistance to treatment. Precise pathogen identification is vital to avoid misdiagnosis and ensure appropriate therapeutic intervention.

Nail Pathogen Panel

CoreBioLabs precisely analyzes nails for pathogens and resistance markers simultaneously using advanced molecular identification techniques, with the QuantStudio 12 Flex by ThermoFisher®. Our panel allows for treatment plans that involve the possibility of multiple infections of the nail plate and bed, including Onychomycosis.
