ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE & THE TREATMENT OF UTIs

Some Facts About UTIs
  • UTIs are responsible for 10 million doctor visits each year
  • One in five women will have at least 1 UTI in her lifetime with nearly 20% having a recurrence
  • UTIs are often treated with antibiotics for which our bodies have built up resistance
  • Diagnostic testing for antibiotic resistance has historically been culture-based which poses several challenges-Time, Accuracy & Completeness of Pathogen Identification
  • Many patients are prescribed inadequate antibiotics in the treatment of UTIs or do not receive appropriate treatment altogether
  • Early identification of potentially resistant pathogens helps clinicians provide confidence to prescribe the most effective treatment for their patients.

The Solutions

Molecular Diagnostic Assay – The Right Info For The Right Treatment

  • This proprietary assay includes 24 Pathogens, coupled with 3 key antibiotic resistance markers in the same test and
    from the same urine sample.
  • This enables you to help distinguish between viral & bacterial infections and identify bacterial drug susceptibilities.
  • Optimal approach to screen for Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs) and identify pathogens, that go undetected
    with today’s UTI urine culture

Realtox Labs screening is committed to providing clinicians with a reliable and clear picture of causative pathogens within 24 hours
