Our Testing Services
Antibiotic Stewardship through Diagnostic Development
Absolute Diagnostics will follow the CDC guidelines utilizing Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology that detects pathogens by identifying DNA and RNA sequences with an accuracy rate of over 99.6%. This accuracy rate is much higher than the traditional culture and sensitivity-based testing method. Absolute Diagnostics also provides test results in 5-12 hours of receiving a viable specimen under AD controls mitigating the need to prescribe ineffective antibiotics.
In addition, a PharmD Consultant will provide recommendations to the clinician based upon antibiotic resistant genes. Moreover, the consultant will take demographic and payor information into account when giving guidance on antibiotic recommendations.
