Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are considered among the most prevalent diseases globally, affecting approximately 250 million people and resulting in 150 million deaths each year.
Although widely used, urine culture-based methods for the detection of pathogens involved in UTIs are cumbersome. They require up to 30 hours of culturing time, lack sensitivity, are subjective, and have been shown to miss a significant percentage of positive cases.
Real-time PCR (qPCR), especially when paired with standard culture methods, has clinical evidence for molecular detection of UTI pathogens to support effective patient outcomes.
