UTIs are one of the most frequent clinical bacterial infections in women, accounting for nearly 25% of all infections and costing $6 billion globally.
50-60% of women will experience a UTI in their lifetime.
In many suspect UTI cases, antibiotics are prescribed before the bacteria is identified and the antibiotic susceptibility profile is known. Over-prescription of antibiotics is a leading cause of antimicrobial resistance.
Test & Treat have designed a ground-breaking new Point of Care test, U-treat, that allows the clinician to detect a urinary tract infection AND prescribe the appropriate antibiotic, within an hour.
