Advance Micro organism Evaluation Q & A

What kind of advanced microorganism evaluation is available?

The MicroGenDX system offers a number of advanced diagnostic tests including:

  • Ear, nose, and throat
  • Infectious disease
  • Orthopedic
  • Feet and nails
  • Urology
  • Wound care

Your Open Water Medical care provider can use MicroGenDX testing to diagnose even hard-to-identify health issues so you can begin a customized treatment right away.

Why is MicroGenDX a better way to diagnose illness?

MicroGenDX offers several advantages over the traditional methods of diagnosing illness, including:

More accurate diagnostics

MicroGenDX offers the most accurate diagnostics possible because it analyzes your unique DNA in detail. For example, if you have an ear, nose, or throat infection, the tests sequences codes of more than 25,000 microbes to find the culprit. This gives your care provider the certainty they need to properly target the actual cause of the illness, which allows for highly customized treatment.

Faster results

MicroGenDX test results are ready within as little as 24 hours in most cases. The reports identify precisely which bacteria and fungi are in your sample. Additionally, MicroGenDX gives your provider a list of the specific antibiotics that will best target any infections that were found in the test.

Better recovery

When you get the precise medications that best target your infections, your recovery is smoother and easier. Many patients have taken antibiotics that just didn’t work in the past, and that’s often because it was the wrong drug for the infection. With MicroGenDX technology, you get the right treatment the first time, and that allows for a faster recovery.

If you’re suffering and need treatment now, your Open Water Medical care provider may recommend MicroGenDX testing because it’s the best way to get a completely accurate personalized diagnosis and highly effective treatment. MicroGenDX testing can also identify chronic illnesses and recurring infections so you can get optimal treatment solutions.

How does MicroGenDX testing work?

Your Open Water Medical care provider obtains a sample based on your particular situation. A blood draw is a quick process in which your care provider takes a small blood sample from a vein in your arm. With a saliva sample, it’s just a quick swab in your mouth. You may also need to provide a urine sample based on your symptoms and what kind of tests you’re having.
