The labs that Encore Holdings works with offer molecular testing for genital tract infections, with results provided the day after the sample is received. The physician can thus start treatments as much as one week faster than with culture- or antibody-based methods. The test identifies bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and mycoplasma, can detect bacteria even when the patient is currently taking antibiotics, and can differentiate pathogens that cause similar symptoms
And it’s all done with just one swab. The test can identify up to 33 different microorganisms.
We offer both a comprehensive panel and infection-specific panels:
~ STD Panel
~ Candidiasis Panel
~ Bacterial Vaginosis Panel
~ Aerobic Vaginitis Panel
~ Group B Streptoccus Panel
You can get all women’s health assays (BV/CV, STDs) from one sample source.
