Respiratory Pathogen Testing
We provide comprehensive respiratory pathogen detection using moeluclar technique.
Molecular genetic testing is gaining popularity for the detection of respiratory pathogens. Identifying slow-growing pathogens can be difficult using traditional culturing. Our tests rapidly identify over 25 common viral, bacterial, and fungal targets.
Symptoms to Consider
- Acute Bronchitis
- Common cold
- Acute pharyngitis
- Acute tonsillitis
- Cough and fever
- Viral infection
- Other nasal and sinus diseases
Urinary Tract Infection Testing
We provide comprehensive and affordable UTI testing for physicians whose patients experience symptoms such as frequent and painful urination.
Providing a fiscally responsible urinary infection testing options.
This panel will reflex from Urinalysis to UTI ID, and is based on the same criteria as the traditional urinary analysis, so your patients can avoid the higher cost of UTI ID Panel if unnecessary.
Now you can provide patients the quickest and most accurate diagnosis possible
• Quick TAT, reports by 5 p.m on the day specimen is received
• Drug resistance marker results available prior to antibiotic sensitivity results
• Traditional antibiotic sensitivity results accompany UTI results
• Individual pathogen test ordering available
Providing fast, accurate data to inform the patient’s provider related to improving outcomes to clinical diagnosis and disease.
Clinical laboratory testing is a critical component of every patient’s overall care. Approximately 80% of every diagnosis is the result of the right laboratory tests. We provide comprehensive and innovative clinical laboratory services for clinical chemistry, hematology, immunology, serology, bacteriology and urinalysis.
Reliably monitoring chemicals, drugs and toxins to guide individualized treatments and therapies for each patient. Our unique portal offers one touch ordering, results, and tracking.
Healthcare providers rely on fast, comprehensive toxicology testing to make well-informed decisions for each patient. We offer both urine drug testing and non-invasive oral fluid testing for drug screening and confirmation to inform pain management, mental health, and addiction treatments. We can effectively analyze over sixty drug and metabolites with rapid turnaround—enhancing provider-patient relationships and helping ensure fully compliant drug-testing programs.
Transforming genetics data into actionable patient care.
First Choice Laboratory is at the forefront of genetics testing, utilizing next generation sequencing, giving doctors and patients powerful actionable insights for navigating patient care. Our genetic tests include:
- Hereditary Cancer
- Parkinsons, Alzheimers, & Dementia
- Carrier Screening
- Obesity / Diabetes
Finding the right medications and most effective dosage for each individual patient.
Every patient has a unique genetic make-up that largely determines how he or she will respond to particular medications. A drug that is effective for one patient may be less effective for another. Likewise, a drug that’s safe for one patient may be risky for the next, even at the same dosage.
With our pharmacogenetic testing, healthcare providers no longer have to use a one-size-fits-all approach to patient medication. Our extensive menu of testing options helps providers optimize patient care by informing specific medication selection and the most effective dosage for each patient. We also work closely with providers to create customized testing options matched to meet specific practice needs.
Allergy Testing Services
Faster, safer testing for symptom causes to determine the proper allergy treatment for patients.
Allergies, respiratory infections, and asthma often present with similar symptoms. First Choice Laboratory uses the 3gAllergy™ assay (a third-generation allergen-specific IgE test) to help providers in the diagnosis and early treatment of allergies. Our test delivers fast, reliable results with no patient risk of a severe reaction.
State-of-the-art, board-certified subspecialty Anatomic Pathology, including molecular-based tests to aid in the diagnosis and management of disease as it relates to patient treatment decisions.
We are committed to delivering the most precise, expert and comprehensive diagnostic information to healthcare providers, creating opportunities for precision medicine and targeted therapies that lead to the best possible patient outcomes. Our pathologists are available to assist healthcare providers in determining the proper testing orders.
We use proven, clinically relevant, advanced technology, so our providers and their patients can be confident in their test results. Data on markers with prognostic and predictive significance are also routinely incorporated into pathology reports, allowing individualized treatment plans for patients. Plus our dedicated specialists are always available for consultation, providing clarity and additional interpretation to providers as needed.
