Clinical Testing

We are different than routine pathology testing laboratories. We expertise in performing analysis for aerobic and anaerobic bacteriology, parasitology, mycobacteriology, mycology, and virology.

With a range of clinical microbiology services, we help doctors and patients in detecting, characterizing, and quantifying microbes from clinical samples to reach diagnosis and to treat infectious diseases.

With molecular techniques, like PCR, RT-PCR and hybridization arrays we provide interpretations by highly experienced professionals.

We emphasize on "Right sample, Right test", to reach our goal for accurate diagnosis to treat acute or chronic infections.
