Guidance tests are a suite of novel urine tests utilizing advanced technologies that identify pathogens commonly associated with recurrent or persistent urinary tract infections, simple cystitis, interstitial cystitis, or prostatitis. The test helps your physician better determine the antibiotic needed to treat the infection.

If you are experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) more than twice a year, have been diagnosed with simple or interstitial cystitis, or if you are a man experiencing symptoms of prostatitis, you will benefit from this test.

Guidance provides better accuracy compared to traditional urine culture and offers personalized antibiotic therapy options for your infection. Treatment options are available in just 48-72 hours.

Yes, Guidance is covered by Medicare and multiple insurance plans.

The Guidance test must be ordered by a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. Contact your medical office to find out how Guidance may play a role in your treatment planning.
