Eliminating the guesswork from urinary tract infection diagnosis.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are one of the most commonly diagnosed illnesses in older adults and one of the leading reasons antibiotics are prescribed in long-term care facilities.

The majority of UTIs are caused by enteric microbes, a group prone to multiple drug resistance. The development of multi-drug resistant organisms has complicated the clinical diagnosis, and the ease of following the prior evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and treatment no longer exists.  UTI/STI testing from Biovision Diagnostics can quickly and accurately identify pathogens and detect potential antibiotic resistance, so effective treatment can begin sooner.

    UTI/STI testing helps to improve clinical confidence and decrease patient risk.

    Detects polymicrobial infections

    Identifies potential antibiotic resistance

    Aids in quick clinical decision-making

    Reduces unnecessary adverse drug events

    Get accurate diagnosis with real-time PCR for pathogen identification and detection of antibiotic resistance.

    All within 24 hours.

    • PCR, a molecular technique, can precisely analyze the genetic material of pathogens

    • Provides a more definitive diagnosis than POC antigen assays

    • 24-hour turnaround from specimen receipt

    • Higher accuracy than conventional culture
