Benchmark Laboratories provides medical professionals with personalized molecular testing solutions for viral, bacterial, and fungal pathogens. Our molecular testing methods reduce wait-time without compromising the quality of patient results.
Traditional pathogen culture and identification methodologies can take days or weeks to receive results. At Benchmark Laboratories, our labs can turn tests around in under 24 hours. By choosing Benchmark Laboratories, your patients can rest easy knowing that their doctors are partnered with the most efficient and effective lab in the country.
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a innovative molecular testing technique that detects a targeted genetic sequence present in any given sample—identifying cancer genes, bacteria, fungus, and viral. This practice amplifies the targeted genetic material in the sample through a complex series of heating and cooling cycles.
At this stage, analysis is done to determine any target gene amplifications. If the amplification of the target gene is detected in the sample, a positive result of the pathogen in question is yielded. If no amplification is detected, then it means that the target sequence is not present in the sample, and the pathogen in question is absent, yielding a negative result.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the US, there has been a great need for PCR testing for the same by medical professionals as foot traffic to their clinics has doubled. PCR is currently the most sensitive testing methodology compared to antigen and antibody testing – making the diagnostic value of PCR significant for the detection of current Covid-19 infections.
Our facility at Benchmark Laboratories features the latest innovative testing equipment, allowing for fast turn-around time and actionable test results. The Benchmark Laboratories founding partners have over 50 years of combined experience in both laboratory and healthcare services.
