Description

If you suffer from chronic or reoccurring urinary tract infections (UTIs) or have been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC), you need answers about what is causing your infection. Traditional laboratory cultures, which attempt grow the microbes from your urine sample in a lab, often fail to identify the bacteria or fungi that make up your infection. MicroGenDX combines two advanced technologies to test your urine sample instead. One is called “next-generation sequencing” (NGS), which uses a database of over 57,000 bacteria and fungi to identify all of the microbes in your urine sample with 99% accuracy over 3-5 days. The other is called quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), which can more quickly identify common microbes causing UTI or IC in just 24-48 hours. If you are suffering from pain while urinating, bladder pain, a persistent need to urinate, dribbling, pain during sex, or other UTI or IC symptoms, then now may be the time to get a urine test that uses qPCR and NGS. For an additional charge, you can add a urine test for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) – also called sexually transmitted Infections (STIs) – to detect Gonorrhea, T. vaginalis (“trich”), Chlamydia, and Mycoplasma genitalium.

Infections information

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system – your kidneys, bladder, ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder) or urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). UTIs are usually either "upper" or "lower," depending on where the infection is located. The most common are lower UTIs, which infect the bladder and can cause it to become inflamed (these are referred to as "cystitis"). In most cases, these bladder infections are caused by bacteria, though they can sometimes be caused by certain viruses or fungi (yeast). Both women and men get bladder infections, but they are much more common among women. For example, among people between the ages of 20 and 50, bacterial UTIs are about 50 times more common among women than men. In people older than 50, there’s less of a difference between the sexes.
