Fungi can infect almost any part of the body; however, these infections are most commonly observed in the skin and nails, mainly in the foot. Anyone can acquire these infections, but the elderly and critically ill are often the most common sufferers.
Our molecular genetic test helps clinicians identify the fungal pathogens found in nail tissue enabling doctors to begin targeted therapy within days.
Our assay can accurately identify the genetic material of pathologic fungi with a turn around time of one week. Traditional cultures often take up to four weeks before getting results. Our test is performed using the patient’s nail clippings, and multiple pathogens can be detected in one test.
