All over the globe to find infections, culture-based microbial tests take 4 to 5 days to know the results. We at AMMAGENOMICS use fast PCR testing and report in 4 to 6 hours. PCR test has other advantages over culture test. In culture tests, it is difficult to grow all the microorganisms and we fail to detect some of them. However, in PCR-based testing, almost all microorganisms are detected.
Microbiological tests can’t be done in the case of viral infections because viruses cannot be cultured in normal conditions like we do for bacteria and fungi. So that is why PCR became very prominent for viral detection testing methods.
Vaginal Culture Test
Vaginal microbiome has a direct impact on women’s health and it impacts pregnancy.
We investigate the vaginal microbial community to determine the IVF success rate. Taking the test also helps to know if there will be a miscarriage or if it will be full-term pregnancy of pre-term delivery. Instead of a time consuming 4 days culture test, we do 3 to 4 hours PCR based test to detect total Lactobacillus, L. Crispatus, Prevotella, Lactobacillus iners, Atopobium vaginase, Gardnerella vaginalis, Ecoli and Fusobacterium nucleatum.
Stool Culture Test
Stool test is used to identify the presence of blood or other gastrointestinal abnormalities including colon or gastric cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, haemorrhoids, anal fissures, or infections. There are primarily two categories of stool tests. A Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) finds out if your faeces contain blood. The second type is Stool DNA Test which looks for genetic material from malignant tumours and polyps.
It is vital to remember that stool testing only works as a reliable colon cancer screening tool when combined with other techniques. The next step is to schedule a consultation with your healthcare physician, who will likely recommend a colonoscopy or another test if the results of your stool test are positive.
Urine Culture Test
Many tests on your urine, or pee, are performed during a urine test. It is employed to look for early warning indications of common ailments or disorders. Urine tests, urine analyses, and UA are other names for it. An annual physical exam or other routine examination of your general health may include a urinalysis. One technique to identify such ailments in their early stages is through a urine examination. Diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease are a few of them.
A urinalysis is simply an indicator to know what is happening inside your body. The test may reveal red flags, but it cannot definitively infer your doctor of any health issues. The outcome can be a sign that you need additional testing and follow-up. Depending on the initial purpose of the test, the next phases may vary.
Why do you need to test in AMMAGENOMICS?
In AMMAGENOMICS, we are using PCR-based tests not only for viruses but also for bacterial and fungal infections. It will be very fast to detect these infections in the PCR method and it can be done in 3 to 5 hrs.
We can report the results instead of waiting for 3 to 5 days. So at AMMAGENOMICS culture-based test is replaced by a PCR-based test which is very accurate, fast and economic.
Another advantage is whichever microorganism that grow in the culture can be detected in the PCR test because the DNA of the infectious organism is itself directly tested.
If you are having Urinary Tract Infection, usually all labs take three to four days to do urine culture and give results. But at AMMAGENOMICS we use the PCR method to detect the infection and will give results in three hours. We also let you know what all bad bacteria are present in your urinary tract.
We use our own patented AMGCS DNA Extraction Method that performs much better than other DNA Extraction Kits. So if you look at our achievement page, you can see that we detect more microorganisms than other extraction kits. So doing testing for viral, bacterial and fungal infections at AMMAGENOMICS is of great advantage to you.
