Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC) Implements PNA FISH(R) Tests to Help Provide Better Care for Patients with Bloodstream Infections
Date:7/21/2009

About PNA FISH(R)

PNA FISH is an easy-to-use and highly sensitive and specific fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) assay that uses PNA (peptide nucleic acid) probes to target species specific ribosomal RNA (rRNA) in live bacteria and yeast. PNA FISH tests enable microbiology labs to provide rapid and accurate identification of bloodstream pathogens, including S. aureus, Enterococcus species, P. aeruginosa and Candida species, directly from positive blood cultures in hours instead of days. Clinical studies show that rapid identification of bloodstream pathogens using PNA FISH tests leads to more appropriate patient therapy that saves lives and reduces unnecessary antibiotic use, patient length of stay and hospital costs.
