AIM laboratories provide accurate, comprehensive and rapid diagnostic tests to correctly identify infectious pathogens through the use of very sensitive and specific real-time Open-array platform-based PCR assays.
The specimen arrives in our lab and results will be ready in 24hours. Results are delivered on a one-page summary that provides treatment options. This test detects the presence of pathogen only and does not detect disease. Clinically correlate results for significance.
AIM Laboratories utilizes molecular genetic tests with TaqMan probe-based fluorescent-Real-Time PCR to detect infectious pathogens in:
Urinary Tract Infections (38 pathogens: 35 bacteria, 1 protozoan and 2 viruses), Respiratory tract infections (44 pathogens: 31 viruses, 12 bacteria and 1 fungus), Women’s reproductive health infections including sexually transmitted disease-causing pathogens (34 pathogens: 31 bacteria, 1 protozoan and 2 viruses), and Wound/skin infections (43 pathogens: 34 bacteria, and 9 fungi).
