Molecular Diagnostic Testing

Right Patient. Right Medication. Right Time.

Vanguard Molecular Diagnostic Testing


Molecular diagnostics is a rapidly growing area of laboratory medicine that analyzes the genetic material of humans, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. The use of this information has enhanced the information available to healthcare providers to better detect disease and develop more personalized treatment plans for patients.

Molecular-Based Testing

Vanguard Molecular Pathogen Dx

We use RT-PCR (real-time polymerase chain reaction) to detect and differentiate bacteria and other fastidious pathogens that cause infections. A definitive diagnosis allows you to prescribe a more targeted and effective treatment plan for your patients.

Tests include: Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI), Wound, and Nail.

Vanguard COVID-19, Flu, RSV Testing

We use qPCR DNA and RNA sequencing methods to test for presence of SARS CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.  Our innovative Multiplex PCR combination respiratory test helps you diagnose and differentiate between today’s most common respiratory viruses (COVID-19, Flu, RSV).

Tests include: COVID-19 and a Combination Respiratory Panel (COVID-19, Flu, RSV).

We are a full service laboratory and our menu or tests and services are expanding.
