PCR Wound & Nail Panels

Risks from Wound Infections

More than half of diabetic foot ulcers become infected.¹
Foot infections are associated with increased frequency and length of hospitalization and risk of lower extremity amputation.²
Mortality after diabetes-related amputation exceeds 70% at 5 years.³

PCR Testing

Toenail Fungus

• A fast and accurate laboratory diagnosis is essential for successful treatment because 50% of the cases are misdiagnosed when relying on the clinical appearance only.⁴

• Complete concordance with conventional culture.⁴

• Threefold increase in species-specific detection of dermatophytes compared to culture alone.⁵

Identify dormant organism colonies that can
prevent healing.
