About Transplant Molecular Diagnostics Lab
Most of our tests incorporate quantitative real-time PCR technology that rapidly links amplification with detection and quantification of viral DNA. Antiviral therapy is instituted upon viral DNA detection, followed by close monitoring of quantitative viral titers to assess and maintain the balance between immunosuppression and anti-infective therapies.
Currently, our real-time PCR tests detect viral DNA loads that may be indicative of an active infection that may warrant the institution of antiviral therapies and/or a decrease of immunosuppressive therapies.
This lab is CLIA-certified.
