Molecular Diagnostics

We diagnose pathogens by quantitative detection of signature nucleic acid sequences with real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methodology. Our approach to MICROBIOLOGICAL DIAGNOSTICS has been featured in eBIOforum Magazine.

Our lab is based on the application of PATENTED REAL-TIME PCR METHODS developed for research with intracellular Chlamydia bacteria.

Our real-time PCR delivers reliable RESULTS with rapid turnaround and results available WITHIN 24 HOURS after sample receipt.

At $70 PER ASSAY, critical PCR diagnoses are cost effective and translate rapidly - therefore effectively - into targeted therapy.

What's New...

With the rise in the cost of reagents and supplies, we are increasing the cost of our PCR  assays to $70 after five years of consistent pricing ($60). 

Our approach to FIP diagnosis has been featured in Veterinary Medicine. Please see the FIP assay for details.

Create your own CUSTOM PANEL at a discount  -  we now offer $10 multiple PCR discounts for every PCR after the first one submitted. The canine blood parasite panel for detection of Hepatozoon spp., Babesia spp., Anaplasma spp., Ehrlichia spp., and Borrelia spp. is the most popular combination requested by our clients. Please see our updated MD Submission Form.

Our assays have already created NEW SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION that will help to improve understanding and treatment of infectious diseases.  Recent manuscripts from our laboratory were published in highly respected journals.  These MANUSCRIPTS describe a new understanding of Hepatozoon spp. infection (Li et al., 2008; Allen et al., 2008) and Babesia spp. infection in dogs (Wang et al., 2010a).  The assay for feline immunodeficiency virus allows descrimination of vaccinated from infected cats, and identifies the subtype of the detected FIV strain (Wang et al., 2010b).
