|Actual Enrollment :||38 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|

|Actual Study Start Date :||January 1, 2017|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||August 24, 2018|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||July 2, 2019|
|Men scheduled for prostate biopsy randomized to Control||
Other: Control group
Control group: rPCR results will not be shared with the clinical provider at time of standard of care prostate biopsy. Standard of care antibiotic selection will be up to the discretion of the clinical provider.
|Experimental: Men scheduled for a prostate biopsy randomized to Intervention||
Other: rPCR results
Interventional group: rPCR results will be shared with the clinical provider to determine appropriate standard of care antibiotic treatment at time of standard of care prostate biopsy.
- Results of rapid qPCR to determine standard of care antibiotic prophylaxis for prostate biopsy. [ Time Frame: Day of prostate biopsy ]Reduction in dual antibiotic prophylaxis in the intervention vs.usual care groups.
- Determine if rapid qPCR test results in longer patient wait times. [ Time Frame: Day of prostate biopsy ]Difference in the amount of time the PCR technique takes compared to the fastest workflow (physician chooses no additional antibiotics).
- Determine if rPCR results and standard rectal culture results are the same. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Comparison of rPCR results to standard rectal culture on Fluoroquinolone infused MacConkey agar.
