microDTTect - improving culture-based PJI diagnostics

The detection of PJI-causing pathogens, especially in biofilm, is a big challenge within implant related infections. Sometimes in revision procedures it is difficult to distinguish between aseptic or septic loosening, for example caused by a low-grade infection.
Additionally the risk of contaminations of the samples, for example if the microbiology lab is an outsourced service, can lead to wrong or not patient-targeted treatment.


microDTTect is a closed transport in-vitro system to enable antibiofilm dissolve for retrieved implants and biopsies to increase sensitivity and specificity of tissue.
It is a superior option for dissolving biofilm, supports microbiology in PJI-detection and finally represents cost saving potential for hospitals.
