UTI Testing

Did you know that,

Urinary Tract Infections are among the most prevalent infections, resulting in as many as 8 million doctor visits annually?

This accounts for an estimated health-care expenditure of US$3.5 billion per year, in the USA, driving the need for expeditious diagnosis and prudent use of antibiotics.

An accurate detection of urinary tract pathogens provides the clinicians critical information needed for more focused therapy, reducing unnecessary patient drug exposure and adverse effects.
