Prostatitis is a common urologic diagnosis in men.
PCR is more sensitive than traditional culture for the detection of uropathogens.1 Guidance® Prostatitis combines the sensitivity of PCR for organism identification and antibiotic resistance gene detection with a unique technology called Pooled Antibiotics Susceptibility Testing (P-AST™). P-AST™ accounts for interactions in polymicrobial infections that may alter antibiotic resistance.
Guidance® Prostatitis is for your patients who you suspect may have acute or chronic prostatitis.
We offer two different sample types for Guidance® Prostatitis:
Guidance® Prostatitis utilizes Pooled Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (P-AST™), which accounts for bacterial interactions that occur in polymicrobial infections that may alter antibiotic resistance. Additionally, the report includes detection of antibiotic resistance genes.
