Advance UTI Diagnosis with Premier PCR Testing

Refining UTI Diagnosis: CoreBioLabs’ Approach

Healthcare providers frequently encounter challenges in diagnosing Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). Common symptoms like burning during urination and pelvic pain can mimic other conditions, often leading to misdiagnosis. Chronic and recurrent UTIs further complicate diagnosis, blurring the line between new infections and relapses. The emergence of antimicrobial resistance—partly due to antibiotic overuse—adds to the treatment challenges. Traditional methods like cultures can be slow and may not accurately detect pathogens, especially in cases of low bacterial count.

Urinary Tract Infection Panel

CoreBioLabs uses advanced molecular identification techniques, with the QuantStudio 12 Flex by ThermoFisher®. We proudly offer an option for in-house Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing. After positive culture growth, our BD Phoenix® system provides antimicrobial concentrations for detection of emerging resistance.
