A Dynamic Infectious Disease Laboratory

With Molecular™ Infectious Disease, we are proud to offer  a dynamic, state-of-the-art laboratory that takes pride in delivering a large STD testing panel via a wide array of collection methods tested with a multitude of platforms. In addition to simplifying the detection and identification of HPV, Molecular Testing Labs provides the detection of a wide array of typically STD-related infections including Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC), Trichomonas Vaginalis (TR), bacterial vaginosis (BV), Candida vaginitis (CV) as well as identification of group B streptococcus (GBS) and Herpes simplex (HSV) 1 and 2. Our dedicated scientists and technologists, along with our fully-developed pipeline and proprietary LIS, ensure that our turn-around-time for ID reporting stays well within a 2-3 day timeframe.
