Infectious Disease Testing

We provide fast and reliable molecular testing for infectious diseases such as HIV Viral RNA, hepatitis B viral DNA, HCV viral RNA, Chlamydia trachomatis DNA, Neisseria gonorrhea DNA, cytomegalovirus, tuberculosis (including MOTT drug resistance), and HPV.

Paternity Testing

Paternity DNA testing helps to determine the biological father of a child using DNA. The test compares the DNA of the child and the alleged father to determine if they share a biological relationship. Paternity DNA testing is highly accurate and can provide conclusive results. If the alleged father is found to be the biological father, this information can be used for a range of purposes, including establishing legal paternity, settling child support disputes, and determining inheritance rights..

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are passed from person to person through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Our STD panel includes testing for the following STDs:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis
  • Herpes
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Syphilis

Many STDs have no symptoms, so a person can be infected and not know it. This is why it's important to get tested regularly if you're sexually active. Testing can involve taking a sample of bodily fluid, such as blood, urine, or discharge, or swabbing an affected area. Some STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can be diagnosed with a urine test, while others, such as syphilis and herpes, require a blood test. If you test positive for an STD, prompt treatment can help to prevent the spread of the infection and prevent potential complications.

Tuberculosis (TB)

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection that primarily affects the lungs but can also spread to other parts of the body. It is spread through the air when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Symptoms of TB may include a persistent cough, fever, night sweats, weight loss, and fatigue. In some cases, there may also be chest pain and coughing up blood. Molecular test based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is used to detect TB DNA in a sample of body fluid or sputum and is used to confirm a TB diagnosis. If TB is diagnosed, prompt treatment is important to prevent the spread of the infection and to reduce the risk of serious complications. Treatment typically involves a combination of antibiotics, taken for several months, to kill the TB bacteria.

Cancer Screening

Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. We offer highly accurate US-patented molecular testing based on analyzing genetic material in the blood to detect cancer affecting the following organs:.

  • Bladder
  • Brain
  • Breast
  • Colon
  • Kidney
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Pancreas
  • Prostate
  • Stomach

Early detection and diagnosis are crucial in the successful treatment of cancer. Regular check-ups and screenings, especially for those at higher risk, can help detect cancer early, when it is more treatable.

Newborn Screening

Newborn screening is a process of testing all newborn infants for a variety of genetic, metabolic, and other conditions that can cause serious health problems. Newborn screening is typically performed within the first few days of life and can help to identify conditions that might otherwise go unnoticed, allowing for early treatment and intervention. Newborn screening is performed using a small blood sample, taken from the baby's heel. Newborn screening is a critical component of preventive health care for newborns and can help to identify and treat serious health conditions before they cause significant harm. If a condition is identified through newborn screening, prompt treatment can improve health outcomes and reduce the risk of long-term complications.

Our newborn screening consists of two panels:

Economy Panel
  • Sickle Cell Disease (SS, SC)
  • HbE
  • Beta-Thalassemia
  • Congenital Hypothyroidism
  • Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Standard Panel
  • Sickle Cell Disease (SS, SC)
  • HbE
  • Beta-Thalassemia
  • Galactosemia
  • Congenital Hypothyroidism
  • Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
  • Phenylketonuria
  • Biotinidase Deficiency
  • Cystic Fibrosis

Genetic Testing

We offer genetic testing to identify changes in DNA sequence or chromosome structure. Genetic testing may also be used for RNA analysis as an output of gene expression, or through biochemical analysis to measure specific protein output. Some of our tests include mutations in APOL1 gene, BRCA 1 & 2, factor V Leiden R506Q, ß-Thalassemia (beta globin), G6PD mutation, and HLA typing.

Disease Panels

We offer comprehensive disease panels covering a wide range of medical conditions. Our panels include screening for epilepsy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS/dementia), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, blood coagulation panel, bone marrow failure, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, connective tissue and related disorders, diabetes and obesity, intellectual disability panel, and Parkinson's disease.

Fertility Testing

Fertility testing examines your genetic background for recessive genes that could possibly affect your future children, or even help determine if you can have children. This testing can determine carriers of genetic condition without symptoms of the conditions. Results of this testing can be used for reproductive planning options and to reduce chances of having an affected child.

Prenatal Testing

We offer a large number of genetic prenatal tests during pregnancy to ensure good health for mother and baby. These prenatal screening and prenatal diagnoses focus on detecting problems with the pregnancy as early as possible. These detect problems such as neural tube defects, chromosome abnormalities, and gene mutations that would lead to genetic disorders and birth defects.
