Wound CarePathogens PCR Testing
Wound infection is diagnosed clinically, with laboratory testing used to provide further information to guide management. It is only necessary to swab a wound if there are clinical signs of infection and the wound is deteriorating, increasing in size or failing to heal.
Molecular diagnostic medicine allow the identification of organisms present in a wound irrespective of the ability of these organisms to be grown in culture. Advances in DNA analyses allow absolute identification of microorganisms from very small clinical specimens. These new methods also provide a quantitative representation of all microorganisms contributing to these polymicrobial infections.
