Urinary tract infection

We are putting the topic of urinary tract infections (UTI) in the spotlight in this series. As one of the most frequently occurring bacterial infections worldwide, it demands more awareness so that we can hopefully reduce the number of infections, as well as treat them more effectively.

We’re breaking down the pain points surrounding UTIs and how the workflow is from a healthcare point-of-view. Are you a patient who suspects you have a UTI for the first time and want to know what to expect? Are you working in a urinalysis (or microbiology) laboratory and want to know how you can optimise the current workflow and speed up results? Are you a clinician who wants to treat patients more quickly and effectively at the point of care?

Or maybe you simply want to know how all of these pain points can be addressed. If so, you’re in the right place.
