GUIDANCE Hematuria

GUIDANCE Hematuria is a unique rapid molecular test that identifies pathogens that may be causing Asymptomatic Hematuria.  Malignancy is diagnosed in less than 10% of cases with microscopic hematuria yet the most common presenting symptom of viral UTI is hemorrhagic cystitis.  If the cause for hematuria is infectious, the detected pathogen will require a distinct treatment plan.  You’ll need to identify the pathogen to create the right treatment plan.

Asymptomatic microscopic or gross hematuria

2 gray top tubes of 4 ml midstream or catharized urine

Note: 8 ml midstream urine in yellow top tube required for Urinary Analysis

AUA guidelines suggest upon the discovery of hematuria, an assessment of the asymptomatic microhematuria patient should include

  • A careful history, physical examination, and laboratory examination to rule out causes of AMH such as infection
  • Once the benign causes have been ruled out, the presence of asymptomatic microhematuria should prompt a urologic evaluation1

GUIDANCE Hematuria is designed to assist in ruling out or ruling in an infectious cause for hematuria

The test detects:

Adenovirus BK Virus JC Virus
HHV-1,-2 (HSV 1 & 2) HHV-3 (VZV) HHV-4 (EBV)
HHV-5 (CMV) HHV-6 HHV-7
Mycobacterium avium Mycobacterium tuberculosis Streptococcus pyogenes
