Pathogen Detection; PCR Testing
Antibiotic resistance is an emerging crisis. The overprescribing of antibiotics has led to resistance and ineffectiveness of prescribed medications. In an effort to combat this crisis, antimicrobial stewardship has the goal of reducing resistance, decreasing unnecessary costs and improving patient outcomes. At Helix Diagnostics, our pathogen detection testing is vital in this fight.
Helix Diagnostics pathogen detection is quick and accurate with same day or next day results. Our summaries are custom created to provide ease of viewing testing conclusions to reduce time spent scanning pages of reports in search of the information you need. We are here to help you serve your patients timely and accurately so that you can produce a treatment plan that will have the best outcomes. Our cost effective in-network lab’s friendly billing policy accepts most insurance plans.
