Test Overview

The Express Gene™ WOUND PLUS panel is an advanced RT-PCR test that provides extensive detection of pathogens and resistance genes associated with wound infections. This comprehensive panel is designed to identify a wide array of bacterial, fungal, and resistance markers, offering an unparalleled level of diagnostic detail. It is ideal for healthcare providers who require the most thorough analysis possible for effective infection management.

Key Features

The WOUND PLUS panel includes all organisms detected by the WOUND panel, such as Enterococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae (Group B), Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A), Methicillin/Oxacillin (mecA), and Vancomycin (vanA & vanB). Additionally, it expands coverage to include:

  • Fungal Pathogens: Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus terreus, Candida auris, Candida kruseii, Candida parapsilosis, and Fusarium solani.
  • Additional Bacterial Pathogens: Citrobacter braakii/freundii, Citrobacter koseri, Clostridium septicum, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Corynebacterium striatum, Klebsiella oxytoca/michiganensis, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus lugdenensis, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella aerogenes, and Neofusicoccum mangiferae.

 

The inclusion of these additional pathogens and resistance genes ensures that even the most complex and atypical wound infections are identified. This comprehensive detection capability is crucial for guiding effective and targeted therapeutic interventions, particularly in severe or resistant infections.

The Express Gene™ WOUND PLUS panel is a vital diagnostic tool for clinicians seeking to deliver the highest standard of care in wound management. By offering extensive pathogen and resistance gene coverage, this panel helps optimize patient outcomes through precise and informed treatment decisions.
