Molecular Diagnostics

cells

The Molecular Diagnostics section is incorporated into our Microbiology Department. We offer amplified DNA probe testing for Chlamydia and GC, Real-Time PCR Viral Load for HIV, HCV, and HBV, Hybrid Capture for HPV high risk genotypes, and PCR for MRSA, Clostridium difficile Toxin B, Enterovirus in CSF, and GBS screening during pregnancy.

Our Molecular section is currently undergoing expansion to include assays run on the Roche LightCycler 2.0, and a variety of other assays.

Our Molecular section participates in CAP Survey proficiency testing and is regularly inspected by the JCAHO. All questions concerning testing or specimen requirements can be directed to the UPHSM Laboratory Client Service representatives, Microbiology Section, or the Microbiology Section Supervisor.
