Diagnosing Common Infections

Respiratory infections are among the most common reasons patients seek outpatient care. Gastrointestinal infections are also seen in outpatient settings year-round. Joint infections may be less common, but they are challenging and complex to diagnose.

Overcome Diagnostic Challenges

Many pathogens can cause typical respiratory symptoms, such as congestion, coughing, and fever. Gastrointestinal infections can also be caused by a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause indistinguishable symptoms. Joint infections, which can involve either native or prosthetic joints, are medical emergencies that can lead to functional joint impairment, long-lasting disability, and may even be life-threatening. For all of these conditions, clinicians need fast, reliable diagnostics to make timely, targeted treatment decisions.

Patient Condition



Many respiratory pathogens can cause similar, overlapping symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose respiratory infections based on symptoms alone.



When it comes to gastrointestinal infections, traditional stool testing is labor intensive and time consuming—and it often fails to provide actionable results. 

Joint Infection

Conventional testing for joint infections is complex, often requiring multiple patient samples, various send-out tests, and days of waiting for results.
