GeneIQ One Choice Report and Antimicrobial Stewardship Program
GeneIQ, a molecular diagnostics service provider based in Dallas, Texas, has launched the One Choice Report and Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. The report features a PCR-based detection method that includes a panel of microbial organisms commonly found in urinary tract infections, women's health related infections, sexually transmitted infections, and wound infections. The report incorporates polymicrobial infections, antibiotic resistance markers, antibiotic side effect profiles, and the patients' known antibiotic allergies to help select treatment that is both safe and effective. In addition, by incorporating an antibiotic stewardship the report gives stakeholders the ability to monitor trends of infections in their community and to track antibiotic resistance as a key indicator.
