THE IMPACT OF POLYMICROBIAL INFECTIONS ON URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS & ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

Traditional culture misses a significant percentage of organisms in urine which is no longeconsidered a ‘sterile’ environment.

New information suggests that many infections are polymicrobial in nature and these mutualistic interactions can potentially enhance infection as well as resistance to antibiotics.

GUIDANCE combines the latest technology in microbial DNA detection with a phenotypic, functional assay that provides clinicians with state of the art microbial assessment for UTIs.
