PCR-based testing identifying genetic materials for onychomycosis

PCR Turnaround Time: 24-48 Hours

Accurate Pathogen Identification for Prompt and Targeted Anti-fungal Treatment

  • Shown to be twice as sensitive as culture when identifying dermatophytes as the causative organism
  • Organism identification to complement high sensitivity PAS/GMS stains without substantially increasing turn-around-time
  • Organism Genus and Species may be necessary for pre-authorization of new topical anti-fungal medications
