Star Medical Lab offers a comprehensive Wound Panel Testing which uses molecular techniques to identify common pathogens that often tend to infect wounds and affected skin.
Delays in the diagnosis and targeted treatment of wounds can result in challenges in the healing process and increasing recovery time. This makes the healthcare providers depend largely on quick and accurate diagnostics to prevent infections from forming and progressing. While some patients require short-term therapy or increased medication to kickstart the healing process, in severe cases, some may need hospitalization and intensive care for untreated infections on the wounds.
With a well-equipped testing capacity, cutting-edge technology, and an online patient portal, Star Medical Lab places a high priority on producing results of the highest caliber. Our healthcare partners benefit through improved patient care and informed diagnoses.
Wounds can be caused by multiple factors. Bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, or trauma to name a few. Severe and chronic wounds are challenging to treat as they take longer to heal and require close attention at all times. In addition, there are multiple types of chronic wounds, including venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and pressure ulcers.
Accurate identification of the cause of the wound and the infection source helps with effective treatment and prevention of further complications and our Wound Panel Testing at Star Medical Lab does just that!
If you are presented with the following symptoms, you might have contracted a wound infection.
Wound Panel testing offered at Star Medical Lab employs a sample collected from the wound location. This is typically done by flocking a tipped specimen swab. The lab technician will then receive the sample and perform multiple PCR tests on it to detect any bacterial specimens present.
Generally, the skin flora often causes the specimen to be contaminated, making it unsuitable for use. In addition to that, culture techniques do not always detect all the pathogens present in the wound. At Star Medical Lab, the molecular methods that are used provide sensitive and quick detection of the bacteria found in the wounds.
