No waiting! Whether we do your microbiology at your location or at our CLIA certified lab, you will have a preliminary report or final report ready for you each day.
No recalling patients to recollect specimens. No transporting specimens, therefore no specimens are lost or mixed up "in transit". Specimens for bacterial cultures are set up on media in your office and incubated within minutes after collection.

On-Site Culture Set-up, Interpretation at our CLIA Certified Lab
Culture specimens are collected, set up by your staff and incubated at your location. The next day cultures are picked up by our microbiologist and read at our laboratory.
We can perform cultures on-site thus enabling you to bill some private insurances as well as Medicare and Medicaid.
Our quality microbiologists give you a result you can trust. Quicker results mean rapid treatment and improved care.
If submitting claims to Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies is bogging you down -- let us do the leg work for you! We are happy to submit claims for your patient's microbiology testing that we perform.
