Our Response to COVID-19: In order to better serve our community, LabTox has started confirmation testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This testing is done via a simple nasal swab and results are ready in 24 hours once the swab reaches our lab.
LabTox knows the importance of testing for bacterial and viral infections in order to better assist in patient treatments. That is why we also offer a Comprehensive Respiratory Pathogens panel that covers many of the most common pathogens that lead to respiratory infection. Additional infectious disease testing is resulted in less than 48 hours.
Just as with Toxicology, our Molecular department utilizes the very best in pathogen detection, real-time quantitative PCR. This robust, sensitive, and advanced testing methodology provides quick results that you can trust. Instead of looking for antibodies we look for the actual viral and bacterial RNA/DNA.
Our hope is that this testing will help better serve physicians in treating bacterial versus viral infections and address co-infections more efficiently.
