Our Vision for Pathogen Detection

Our vision is to provide physicians with the ability to rapidly and accurately identify disease causing pathogens in the clinic by placing molecular assays directly in clinical labs where patients are seen.

Currently, we are focusing on the most common pathogens which account for the most common illnesses patients have. These developed assays change frequently as our infectious disease team diligently perform pathogen literature reviews, bioinformatics, in silico testing, and assay development.

PCR Testing is a comprehensive assay that detects multiple pathogens simultaneously in a closed-tube, easy-to-use system. The tests we have currently offered are:

  • Upper Respiratory Infection (URI)
  • Pediatric Upper Respiratory Infection (URI)
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
  • Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT)
  • Wound/Infection

Turn around time (TAT) is in-line with industry standards:

Before noon, you receive results in the same day. After noon, you receive results the next day.

Upper Respiratory Infection (URI) Testing

A Upper Respiratory Infection (URI) test pinpoints the influenza virus and a number of respiratory viruses and/or bacteria so your physician can treat it swiftly and accurately. Therefore, testing can reduce the severity and illness timeframe, as well as reducing overall medical costs for patients. Diagnosis through URI testing is crucial because identifying the type of respiratory pathogen is key when it comes to proper and effective treatment protocols. Pediatric Upper Respiratory Infection testing is also available.
