Urinary tract infections are among the most common types of illnesses among all ages.

However, in some instances, a lack of accurate and efficient diagnostics has led to UTIs being misdiagnosed or inappropriately treated.

Conventional laboratory culture techniques can take 3-7 days to return. These techniques may be limited in that they only detect the most common pathogens like E coli; yet, there are numerous other pathogens that cause UTIs. These are usually missed because they don’t easily grow in a culture medium.

Clinicians have often been left with no choice but to prescribe broad-spectrum antibiotics while awaiting test results. Unfortunately, this has contributed to the growing epidemic of antibiotic resistance.
