PCR Testing – Gastrointestinal, Genito-Urinary, Respiratory, Wound Care
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing enables quick and accurate diagnosis of a wide range of infectious diseases without the wait time associated with cultures. PCR identifies specific genetic material from RNA or DNA sequences pertinent to pathogens. The genetic sequencing from a specimen is amplified and then compared to a known source.
Samples can be taken from blood, discharge, skin scrapings and more. PCR testing enables diagnosis of genetic or biological disease. Physicians are able to use this type of testing for diagnosis of respiratory, genito-urinary disease, gastrointestinal, skin infections and more. Sample collection is typically safe and non invasive.
Benefits Of Testing
Identify carriers of many common hereditary cancer gene mutations
Implement early and comprehensive screening in at risk patients
Blood or saliva collection for specimens
