PCR for early diagnosis of Invasive Aspergillosis [Case Study]



In this case study, Dr. Lewis White and Prof. Rosemary Barnes of the Regional Mycology Reference Laboratory, Cardiff, discuss how patient outcomes can be improved by introducing Aspergillus PCR.

Aspergillus PCR, such as Bruker’s Fungiplex® Aspergillus, is a rapid, highly sensitive test for the presence of Aspergillus DNA direct from patient samples.

Learn more about how Aspergillus PCR can:

  • Support earlier diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis
  • Reduce the rates of invasive aspergillosis in high risk patients without increasing costs
  • Be part of a screening strategy for the early signs of Aspergillus in high risk patients
  • Reduce the use of empiric antifungal drugs
