We are experts in molecular diagnostic testing, a laboratory science that unites the precision of molecular biology with laboratory testing.[7] Our focus is guided by PCR technology, which amplifies DNA found in small testing samples to ensure a sample is robust enough to drive testing accuracy.[8]

PCR-based testing has been shown to increase sensitivity, specificity, and speed.[9] A recent Journal of Medical Microbiology study found “PCR increased species-specific detection of dermatophytes by 21.1%, leading to a threefold increase as compared to culture alone.”[10]
