LexaGene Blog Diagnostics Diary

LexaGene’s MiQLab™ System is the only fully automated system on the market today that is equipped with a disposable filter-based sample preparation cartridge that allows for efficient processing of large volumes of sample for sensitive detection of contaminants.

This spring LexaGene conducted a market research survey in conjunction with AAHA to assess the opinions of practicing veterinarians on AMR stewardship and the use of antibiotics in the treatment of companion animals.

The most menacing of all resistant bacteria are the so called “super bugs”- strains of bacteria that are resistant to several different classes of antibiotics or multidrug resistant.

Rapid advancements in PCR testing can replace existing culture & sensitivity testing, providing faster results, preventing unnecessary antibiotic overuse, promoting AMR stewardship.

Physicians and veterinarians can now confidently detect resistance markers and make evidence-based treatment decisions early in an infection to improve patient outcomes.

Three days is a long time to wait when your pet is feeling ill to secure an appointment and then wait even more days for laboratory blood results from the reference lab.

LexaGene’s MiQLab has direct benefits for veterinary clinics. Using LexaGene’s proven point-of-care diagnostics for evidence-based treatment of common bacterial infections found in companion animals may also result in cost savings.

When thinking about how best to isolate a bacterium, scientists were often held to the standards of taking time to grow cultures in laboratories, a process involving days or weeks to simply prepare the sample for testing.

We share a lot with our pets, like the bonds of family and multi-drug resistant bacteria.

More than ever, vet practices are looking for efficient and cost-effective methodologies to take control of these variables and manage costs.
