HOW PCR-Dx's SOLUTION MODEL WORKS

We provide efficient testing, expedited results, and quality patient care.

TEST

We believe in universal testing, even of asymptomatic patients, to establish a baseline of infection in the patient population.

TREAT

PCR-Dx equips clinicians and telehealth providers with essential data to efficiently assess and triage patients and determine the best therapies for treatment.

TRACK

PCR-Dx utilizes essential data to inform the provider and enable vital contact tracing in the target patient population.

ISOLATE

We encourage patients who are infected or might be, to quarantine and contain the spread based on CDC guidelines.

As many as 80 percent are not aware they have the virus. Asymptomatic carriers pose a great risk to their company and community at large, which is why it is essential that every individual from an identified patient population get tested

FAST AND ACCURATE RESULTS

PCR-Dx advanced molecular diagnostic test panels empower clinicians to make decisions based on highly accurate and rapid identification of pathogens through DNA analysis of multiple pathogens at the same time.

The respiratory system is one of the essential parts of our body we cannot live without. It is a crucial anatomical system we need for gas exchange to survive. This delicate structure faces some dangerous pathogens that threaten the health of patients and their loved ones. Encouraging patients to seek help for their health problems is an essential step toward facilitating a safe and healthy community.  

What pathogens affect the respiratory system? 

Many different pathogens may impact the respiratory system of an individual. When these pathogens attack, they cause varying levels of damage that result in everything from discomfort to irreversible medical conditions. Especially in the early stages, these diseases often mimic each other. However, treatments for different respiratory illnesses may be similar; identifying the differences between them is incredibly important.  

Each disease comes with a different level of urgency and contagion. While some pose a minor discomfort to those the pathogens infect, others post threats on a global level with fatal consequences if conditions are left to escalate. Our tests at PCR-Dx include detection of the following respiratory pathogens: 

  • Adenovirus 

  • Coronavirus HKU1 

  • Coronavirus NL63 

  • Coronavirus 229E 

  • Coronavirus OC43 



  • Influenza A 

  • Influenza A/H1 

  • Influenza A/H1-2009 

  • Human Rhinovirus 

  • Enterovirus 



  • Influenza A/H3 

  • Influenza B 

  • Parainfluenza Virus 1 

  • Parainfluenza Virus 2 

  • Parainfluenza Virus 3 



  • Parainfluenza Virus 4 

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus 

  • Human Metapneumovirus 


Who is at risk for respiratory infections? 

Anyone can fall victim to a respiratory infection. However, not everyone will deal with the severe repercussions of the disease. While this is a good thing, this notion also results in many people not taking their infections seriously. People who fail to feel the disease's extreme symptoms don't understand the urgency of staying at home and taking precautions to limit the spread.  

The entire even of the COVID-19 was a significant example of this phenomenon. Individuals who didn't feel the weight of symptoms continued to interact with others, sometimes even participating in huge events. These "super spreader" events only perpetuated the cycle of not being responsible and continuing to pass the disease on without regard for people's health. 

The numbers do not lie. While many people survive the infection, a significant number of people face severe consequences (even if it is not fatal). Taking the time to educate potentially infected patients about their risk and their responsibility to their community is an important measure to limit the spread.

Upper respiratory infections are uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous conditions. When working with patients or clients that may be sick, it is essential to stay aware of the potential risks involved with their diagnosis and treatment. While not all diseases or medical conditions are contagious, those may result in contamination and stress. Unfortunately, many respiratory infections are contagious.  

What are upper respiratory infections? 

There are many different diseases that doctors categorize as upper respiratory infections (URI). URIs are any infections that relate to the upper respiratory system. This system includes the bronchi, larynx, nose, throat, and pharynx. Some of the most common upper respiratory infections include the common cold, sinus infections, laryngitis, bronchitis, and the flu.  

The virus is contagious while it is still active. It’s a wise idea to take some precautionary steps to limit the spread of any infectious disease. It’s difficult to know precisely when the “contagious period” for a virus ends, so experts advise you to stay home while you feel sick. You never know what vulnerable people may get severely ill from your minor infection.  

How are infections spread? 

Viruses spread in a variety of different ways. Many times, it involves direct contact with bodily fluid. When someone is constantly coughing or sneezing, it is straightforward to accidentally touch someone’s mucus or salivaGerms may live on the hands of infected individuals and contaminate everything they come into contact with. Some diseases are more contagious than others depending on the location of infection and the exact pathogen responsible.  

What can you do to limit the spread of infection?  

There are a few basic measures that help limit the spread of a virus. Even with proper treatment, viral infections have a contagious period. If you work in an environment with many people coming in and out, you may want to take precautions to limit the spread. Some tips to battle contagious pathogens include: 

  • Washing Hands Regularly 


Wash your hands regularly and encourage employees and clients to wash their hands regularly too. Setting up disinfection stations or hanging signs is a great way to remind others to practice good hygiene.  

  • Avoid Touching Face 


Even if you wash regularly, you’ll likely come into contact with pathogens somewhere. Do not make it easier for a virus to get into your body. Your face is a vulnerable area on the body with many openings for a pathogen to sneak into.  

  • Disinfect High-Contact Surfaces 


Disinfecting surfaces often is a great way to keep things clean. Consider disinfecting high-traffic surfaces (like doorknobs or chairs) more regularly.

The sex of an individual significantly influences health. There are many sex differences between health which are both societal and biological. As medicine is a predominantly male-influenced industry, there are many aspects of women's health misrepresented.  

As society changes and medical professionals emphasize equality, addressing women's health concerns is a priority. Understanding more about women's health is essential for a brighter tomorrow.  

What are Some Societal Influences on Women's Health? 

Both women and men around the world face restrictions for primary healthcare. These limitations are a huge concern, especially for those in developing nations. Within many of these countries, women remain more vulnerable than their male counterparts on a larger scale. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), this disproportion reflects societal differences.  

Factors restricting women from obtaining the best medical advice possible often break down to the role women allegedly play in society. In nations where society considers women the lower sex, power discrepancies bar them from obtaining the necessary help. 

When health is available, they may not have the resources available to purchase services. In countries where women do not have equal access to employment or education, men have a distinct advantage. Cultures that restrict women from receiving equal education or work opportunities generally do so because they perceive a woman's sole purpose in life as a mother and caretaker. This cultural perspective influences medical practices, placing the highest priority on women's reproductive roles and dismissing other issues.  

Currently, many organizations battle these inequalities to bring equal access to women's healthcare. Of course, these problems are not exclusive to developing nations.  

Concerns About Women's Health  

Modern medicine received influence from a male bias. Many traditional practices favor male patients. As scientists identify inequalities in the system, the medical industry must work to correct these issues. In recent years, medicine took great strides towards the economy.  

Physicians must take women's concerns seriously. Having a strong understanding of women's different risks is also a crucial factor for medical professionals to know. For example, there are many conditions women are more likely to experience. Diseases like breast cancer, UTIs, and anxiety are more frequent in women. Additionally, women are more likely to experience sexual assault and experience stigmas related to sexual activity.  

Physicians should know how to approach topics delicately and effectively encourage proper health and hygiene. Spreading awareness and education is the key to overcoming these inequality obstacles. In time, the world will bridge the gap between inequality in access to healthcare.
