Molecular Testing & Capabilities

Molecular Testing

The overprescribing of antibiotics has created an antibiotic resistance crisis. Overprescribing antibiotics leads to ineffectiveness of prescribed medications, which leads to poorer outcomes, and higher associated costs.

Our goal is to improve patient outcomes and reduce antibiotic resistance and its associated costs, by combatting this crisis through the utilization of pathogen detection testing.

Pathogen Detection Testing Highlights

We are here to help you! Call today and learn how Aloha Toxicology testing can help you produce a treatment plan that will improve patients outcomes and lower associated costs.

UTI

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the second most common type of infection in the US, accounting for 10.5 million office visits per year and 50 percent of all Medicare hospital admissions.o   The Facts about Urinary Tract Infections§  UTI is among the most common cause of bacterial infections in long-term care facility residents.§  Effective treatment of a UTI depends on the accurate identification of the pathogen(s) and the correct choice of antibiotic(s).§  About 60 percent of all women will develop a UTI during their lifetime.§  Of those, 25 to 30 percent are likely to have a repeat infection.§  These infections can be devastating. Complicated or untreated UTIs frequently cause sepsis in older adults above 65 years of age, with mortality ranging from 25-60%.§  About 50 percent of all sepsis cases among nursing home residents originate from UTIs.§  Current culture-based methods for detecting UTI pathogens have several limitations. Those limitations include subjectivity and specificity, length of time to results, and missed positive samples.
