GUIDANCE® UTI

GUIDANCE® UTI

THE RIGHT UTI THERAPY
RIGHT FROM THE START.

Guidance UTI is the only rapid test for both pathogen identification and antibiotic sensitivity that’s backed by patented technology. It’s time to provide your patients with personalized therapy options that work the first time.

BYPASS CHALLENGES AND ARRIVE AT SOLUTIONS—IN 48 HOURS.

Traditional urine culture misses up to 22% of all UTI-positive patients.1

Guidance UTI detects 33% more organisms than culture. We cover the most relevant causes of UTIs with a high degree of sensitivity, for a more accurate diagnosis.

Genotype testing alone only provides information about the genetic potential to develop resistance to antibiotics.

Guidance UTI is the only test that also includes Pooled Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (P-AST™) to determine treatments that will be effective against the pool of organisms as they grow and interact in the presence of antibiotics.

Delayed personalized treatment happens consistently with traditional culture methods taking up to three days or more to return results.

Guidance UTI delivers results within 48 hours of a sample reaching the lab, for fast, personalized treatment that advances patient outcomes and antibiotic stewardship.

WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU OVERCOME UNRESOLVED UTIs QUICKLY.

DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM AT THE SOURCE.

Guidance UTI leverages molecular technology to detect more pathogens than traditional culture methods with a high degree of sensitivity, resulting in a more accurate diagnosis.

UNDERSTAND HOW TO ACCURATELY TREAT UTIs.

In populations 65 and older, the rate of polymicrobial infections could be as high as 39%.2 In these infections, bacterial species interact to either increase or decrease resistance against antibiotics. 3–7

To determine if pathogens have antibiotic resistance, some clinicians rely on the presence or absence of resistance genes (i.e., genotype testing). However, genotyping only reveals the genetic potential to develop resistance and does not determine what treatment will be effective against the pool of organisms.

Only Guidance UTI goes beyond genotype resistance testing by also including Pooled Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (P-AST) to determine which treatment will be most effective against the pool of organisms as they grow and interact in the presence of antibiotics.

TAKE THE FAST TRACK TO EFFECTIVE THERAPY.

Traditional culture methods take up to three days or more to return results, requiring physicians to treat UTIs empirically while they wait. This can lead to overprescribing and antibiotic resistance. Guidance UTI delivers results in as quickly as 48 hours, enabling physicians to dispense precise, personalized treatment the first time, which ultimately advances patient care and antibiotic stewardship initiatives.
