Devansh Labs has developed a qPCR based test with a resistance option for rapid detection, speciation, and resistance profiling of wound pathogens. Submit a swab that has been gently wiped over the infected region of skin to our lab and we will perform the DNA extraction and qPCR analysis of the listed pathogens commonly seen in wound infections with immediate reporting.
Accurate and prompt identification and determination of wound pathogens is key to proper wound management for patients suffering from pathogenic infection. The majority of skin wounds are colonized with both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and yeast.
Because efficiency and turnaround time are so important to physicians and their patients, Devansh Labs uses quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR or Real-Time PCR) which is faster than traditional PCR.
Symptoms to Consider
- Increased swelling, tenderness, or pain
- Cloudy drainage, yellow or green pus
- Expanding redness or red streaking
