Agreement reached for distribution of UTI, prostatitis tests
GenomeDx Biosciences and Pathnostics recently announced a strategic agreement for GenomeDx’s distribution of Pathnostics’ Guidance UGx and Guidance PRx, which are commercially available molecular diagnostic tests for urinary tract infections (UTIs) and prostatitis, respectively. GenomeDx will have exclusive distribution rights for Guidance UGx and Guidance PRx in most of the U.S. urology market, and Pathnostics will perform the testing at its CAP-accredited, CLIA-certified laboratory in Irvine, CA. Guidance UGx detects 25 microbial organisms associated with UTIs and determines the susceptibility of the infection to antibiotics considered for treatment. Guidance PRx detects 27 microbial organisms associated with acute prostatitis or chronic bacterial prostatitis and determines the susceptibility of the infection to antibiotics considered for treatment.
