The Infectious Wound Panel (IWP) is a comprehensive panel that detects the most common pathogens infecting wounds and soft tissue. Providing patients and providers with the quickest and most accurate diagnosis possible, this test includes extensive wound pathogen testing, antibiotic resistance markers, and unmatched accuracy of PCR testing.
Symptoms to consider when ordering the IWP may include: increased swelling, tenderness, pain, cloudy drainage, yellow or green pus, expanding redness, streaking, and fever. The quick and simple test collection can help avoid delays in diagnosis and help prevent infections from progressing.
