DNA-Based Infectious Disease Detection
Livingston Med Lab provides a faster and more accurate method to detect infectious agents. A simple swab-based test is used to identify commonly occurring infectious agents including bacteria and viruses. This test is of utmost importance in pediatric care and hospital-acquired infection detection. Often it is difficult to distinguish the agent of infection: bacterial or viral. Bacterial infections can be treated using antibiotics whereas few treatment options exist for viral infection. Incorrect diagnoses may lead to an unnecessary medication regimen which should be most definitely avoided.
