PCR Outperforms Culture For Your Patients
HealthTrackRx PCR detects what culture misses, and even what culture cannot detect. What pathogens could you be missing by ordering culture and sensitivity testing instead of PCR testing for your patients?
HOW HealthTrackRx PCR COMPARES TO
Unlike traditional culture, HealthTrackRx PCR testing obtains a targeted infectious disease diagnosis and provides a personalized antibiogram, enabling fast, accurate and actionable treatment.
|HealthTrackRx PCR||Traditional Culture|
|Turnaround Time||Results within 24 hours*||Results can take an average of 3-14 days|
|Accuracy||~ 99% Sensitivity and Specificity, for all present pathogens, including co-infections||Typically only detects the primary pathogen|
|Detection||Rapid detection of fastidious organisms such as fungi, anaerobes and resistance genes||Extended incubation time for fungi and anaerobes. Potential for “mixed flora” and no specificity of pathogens|
|Antibiotics||Less susceptible to antibiotic use||IS affected by antibiotic use|

Make the Right Diagnosis
At The Right Time
Our PCR testing data shows that antibiotic resistance can occur up to 52% of the time. To assist in curtailing the cost of repeatedly treating resistant infections, HealthTrackRx provides a personalized antibiotic summary that prescribers rely on.
Our antibiogram removes guesswork by detecting antibiotic resistance genes, helping patients receive an antibiotic that works the first time.
