Transform Wound Care Diagnosis with Advanced PCR Testing

Mastering the Diagnostic Complexities of Wound Infections

Diagnosing wound infections is a critical yet challenging task in wound care. Healthcare providers must navigate through a myriad of bacteria, viruses, and fungi to accurately identify the causative agents, especially in the 7 million U.S. patients suffering from chronic wounds. In these cases, infections can significantly hinder the healing process. Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis not only leads to severe complications, including pain and increased hospitalization, but also risks loss of function and mobility.

Wound Pathogen Panel

CoreBioLabs precisely analyzes wounds for 48 pathogens and 13 resistance markers simultaneously using 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.
