Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) technology unlock a vast world of data. However, this information can often be confusing and ambiguous, making interpretation difficult and time-consuming. Results are often interpreted inaccurately leading to poor prescribing habits, defeating the very benefits this advanced technology offers. Some physicians prefer to avoid this altogether and continue using outdated traditional cultures and stains, or simply refer patients to an Infectious Disease specialist for their interpretation, leading to delay in management and care.
