MOLECULAR TESTING AND DIAGNOSING RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTIONS
UltimateDX uses molecular diagnostic testing technology to increase the speed and accuracy of identifying respiratory tract infection pathogens. Through the use of DNA and RNA identification, we are able to isolate pathogen genetics and accurately produce results that further infection diagnosis.
Our technology sets a standard for identifying pathogen markers. The knowledge of pathogen DNA, RNA, proteins, and other genetic markers allows us to be precise with our diagnostic capabilities and bypass the need to culture indicating pathogens. The advantages that come with molecular diagnostics over traditional pathogen culturing are seen through our results. Some advantages of molecular diagnostic testing include:
Immediate results that are not seen in culturing
Identification of pathogens that more precise than past methods of culturing
Detailed specificity with the use of specific biomarkers such as DNA, RNA, and proteins that are associated with pathogens
Ability to identify multiple pathogens at once within the same timely manner
