Urinary Tract Infections


Silent Infections, Serious Consequences

Are your Patients Experiencing

• Recurrent UTI • Interstitial cystitis • Recurrent, persistent, or complicated UTI • Interstitial cystitis • Prostatitis • Past urinary culture results were “contaminated” • On chronic pain care regimens • Pyelonephritis • Prostatitis • Immunosuppressed • Diabetes • Men with UTI

UTIs are among the most prevalent community-acquired and hospital-acquired infections, affecting almost 50% of the population at least once in their lifetime.

Up to 60% of women have at least one symptomatic UTI during their lifetime

Women get UTIs up to 30 times more often than men do.

Urine Culture vs. Molecular Diagnostics


  • Urine culture misses up to 2/3 of all UTI-positive patients, and it detects organisms in only 4% of the cases to diagnose prostatitis
  • Takes 3 to 5 days for results (Fungi can take up to 20 days to get a result)
  • Antibiotics can mask positive results


  • Identifies Pathogens not Detectable by Culture
  • Biochemical Analysis within Hours
  • Detects Antibiotic Resistance Genes
  • Unaffected by Concurrent Antibiotic Use
  • Helps Stem the Rise of Multi-Drug Resistant Pathogens
