The Fine Print

The Wound Infection plus Antibiotic Resistance Panel is a comprehensive panel detecting the most common pathogens that cause skin and soft tissue infections, whether they be bacterial, viral or fungal, along with testing for markers of antibiotic resistance which assists in developing the most effective treatment plan. Breaks in the skin barrier, possibly due to a cut, bite from a pet, bed sore, or just a crack in the skin from cold weather, can lead to an infection in the skin and nearby tissues.

This panel, by using molecular techniques, can quickly identify the cause of a wound infection, avoiding delays in diagnosis which may then lead to preventing infections from progressing. When coupled with testing for markers of antibiotic resistance, the Wound Infection Panel + Antibiotic Resistance allows for timely diagnosis and information about the most effective, personalized treatment plan. 

Patients affected by an infected wound may experience some of the following symptoms: 

  • Expanding redness around a wound
  • Yellow or greenish-colored pus or cloudy wound drainage
  • Red streaking spreading from the wound
  • Increased swelling
  • Tenderness or pain around the wound
  • Fever 

This panel can identify any of the following pathogens if they are present:

  • Acinetobacter baumannii 
  • Bacteroides spp. 
  • Citrobacter freundii 
  • Clostridium perfringens

What is a CLIA certified laboratory?

The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing. (Accessible at: https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/ivd-regulatory-assistance/clinical-laboratory-improvement-amendments-clia).

Is this test FDA approved?

Laboratory Developed Tests (LDT) do not require FDA approval if they are developed using CLIA policies.  This test is analytically validated in accordance with the CLIA Guidance Document (Policy for Diagnostics Testing in Laboratories Certified to Perform High Complexity Testing) as a Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) by St Jude Laboratories, LLC.  Therefore, it has not been cleared or approved by the FDA.

NOTE: This test cannot be offered in the state of New York, USA.
