Unlike traditional laboratory tests that often produce false negatives and take weeks for results, NCF Diagnostics & DNA Technologies utilizes Real-Time PCR for pathogen identification, quantification and detection of antibiotic resistance. In addition, our revolutionary tests produce results within 24-48 hours of the patient sample arriving at our state-of-the-art facility. This helps doctors quickly diagnose and treat patients because we know that time lost is life loss.
Benefits include unnecessary testing reduces the spread of infection, identifies antibiotic resistance, and improves antibiotic stewardship, reduces misdiagnosis and unnecessary drug exposure.
